Hughes gaskets are junk. That's the reasoning to buy from different places

I bought a bar style wrench off of amazon that does 0-50 inch pounds (or so, not near my box). Was about $70 iirc....

0-50 isnt enough... You need to go to 72 and 84 inchs lbs, and then 144 inch lbs which is 12ft lbs.. and i heard hughes uses felpro gaskets now

What I think I did was use the 0-60, this one, then switched to my craftsman 25-150 inch lb for the upper amounts.

Yea makes sense.. Thats what I was thinking im going to have to do... Because no one seems to know of any 0-100+ inch lbs wrench that arent $200+.. I cant find any on google anywhere.. craftsman doesnt even make the beam style anymore.. So i think I'll have to get a Park tool 0-60 inch lbs beam wrench that they sell in bycicle shops http://www.amazon.com/Park-Tool-TW-1.../dp/B000NVCI1U they are much cheaper then the KD tools one, and then just use the $20 20-200 harbor freighter one for the higher torque specs.. Seems like such a waste of money plenum repair is gonna cost me almost $200 uhg

You can't factor the cost of tools into the repair. Torque wrenches are great to have when you're doing almost anything. Pretty much everything has a factory torque spec. I guarantee you'll use the torque wrench for some other repair/mod in the future.

I am pretty much ecstatic when a job forces me to buy a new tool...lol. I haven't used the beam wrench for anything else yet, but the inch pound one I find is one of the most used torque wrench I have. My big wrench runs 30-200 ft lbs and is too big for a lot of the smaller stuff.

I have a 20-200 inch lb torque wrench. Can I just do a little under the 20 by feel?

You can look at it that way, but the tool is going to be good for many more repairs after that as well as mods. So, if you're going to look at it that way, each time you do another repair/mod on your vehicle, you have to take the price of it and divide it by the number of jobs you completed on the Jeep. Going that route, you prove most of your tools are priceless.

nope.
very, very experienced mechanics may be able to, but that wrench won't "click", if that's the style, at under 20inlbs.

probably not consistently, and that's what the torque sequence and stepping up in torque is all about. doing it in an even sequence and the same torque every time so you don't bend the plate or manifold.

get the right tool for the job sir.

They rarely "blow" they get hard, the plate warps, sand you get small gaps.
