This appendix provides general torque limits for fasteners. Special torque values
are indicated in the maintenance procedures for applicable components. The general torque values given in this appendix
shall be used when specific torque values are not indicated in the maintenance procedures. When applying torque in
tightening direction, check torque when the fastener just begins to turn. Conformance is best determined by checking
immediately after assembly.
GENERAL PURPOSE TORQUE LIMITS. The torque values given in Table E-1 apply to head-
treated bolts assembled into tapped holes in steel, cast iron, aluminum, brass, weld nuts, etc., nuts assembled with heat-
treated bolts and studs.
