    The answer from "Alan" on your other thread is correct. Do not exceed 30ft/lbs.

      I've never been able to *get* to 30 ft-lb. with the stock clamps...

        Nate, remember that when the manuals were written, the torque wrenches were beam type with the straight rod/pointer. Perhaps if you took the mean between 26 and 30, (28) you could keep from crushing the clamps.
