Maybe you got a bad one? Sometimes people mess with them in the store and turn the gauge. If left at full pounds and they sit on the shelf for a while they get weak. I've got one (Hf) and it works great.

Not talking about them braking, I am talking about their accuracy... at 10 lbs/ft of torque applied to the wrench, it could actually be torquing any where from 2 lb/ft to 20 lb/ft and the higher up the scale you go the worse it gets. Building engines, I can't tolerate more than .02 lb/ft of variation between pulls.

I personally only use snap-on torque wrenches, but that is only because they offer free recalibration 2 times a year. For the normal DYIer, the Craftsman torque wrenches are more than fine.

Well someone has made this a sticky thread already.

But I do not find the specific torque values for the bolts holding the lower engine case halves together here or in my paper Clymer's manual. Maybe they are found in Ma Kaw's OEM service manual.
