torque wrench

Valve covers are either 6 or 8 ft-lbs.
Rear axel nuts are 218 ft-lbs from memory.( Needed for rear bearing R&R)

I have a 0-150 ft-lb that doesn't fit either job. It is not accurate or small enough for the valve cover nuts so I use a fish scale on a modified ratchet.

I might look for a 10-250 ft-lb and then another one for the small stuff.

I thing clickers are more accurate than reading the pointer on a beam especially when working on the car.
