I know it's not very scientific, but I often use the torque wrench in reverse, to get a rough idea on removal of the the object. OK, this is useless on rusted corroded bits, but alright for some applications.
Use the 3/8 drive for spark plugs and the like, but to be fair, those old experienced Alfistis' probably go by feel? Not being one of those, I like playing with torquee' settings.
Not on the heads and stuff though, then we are into angular tightening sequences as well.
Haven't got one that ranges up to the drive shaft/ hub nuts value, so use a 'T' bar and a length of pipe.
: The air impact wrench is too noisy for my old nervous system nowadays, so that is a last resort piece of kit.
: Don't I rabbit and tinker on a bit?
