This appendix contains standard torque values in Table H-1 and M1101, M1102, and Trailer Chassis torque values in
Table H-2 and provides general information for applying torque. Special torque values and tightening sequences are
identified in the maintenance procedures for applicable components.
Always use the torque values listed in Table H-1 when the maintenance procedure does not give a specific
Unless otherwise indicated, standard torque tolerances are + 10%.
Torque values listed are based on clean, dry threads. Reduce torque by 10% when engine oil is used as a
lubricant. Reduce torque values by 20% if new plated capscrews are used.
Capscrews threaded into aluminum may require reductions in torque of 30% or more of Grade 5 capscrew
torque. Capscrew threaded into aluminum must also attain two capscrew diameters of thread engagement.
