Jeffd -you need to read snappy's post- it's NOT a torque wrench problem- we used the new digital that reads in BOTH directions and reads the highest torque achieved-DIGITALLY. Now does everyone understand it's not the torque wrench- stop the posting about torque wrenches! (better yet if you do not have a blown alcohol motor or car don't respond to this thread) sorry I'm cranky but seeing a new engine with a brad billet block throw the rods out will do it! and Mike we understand the stretch deal but when you have 75 min between rounds and you check rod bearings to tune you don't have time for that. bruce is right- if you find one that works use it and don't be like sheep and follow the flock- do your own thing! Just because joe blow say's there the bomb- they just might go "boom" please keep more info on rods, cranks, pistons, etc.
