Probably. But, I've got a well calibrated arm. :-) I have a bad habit of not using torque specs... Unless I am inside an engine.

My neighbor came over the other day with a bolt with the aluminum threads wrapped around it. The were installing cam journals, and set the torque wrench to 13 foot pounds instead of 13 inch pounds. Oops!

They are two different wrenches, a foot pound wrench does not go down to that low of inch pounds.

Are they able to install an insert in the thread hole?

Thanks mike, I know that, I was shortening the story. Point is, they over torqued it. There are options, over drill and retap to larger, helicoil, or jb weld. Don't know which one they went with.
