This appendix provides general torque limits for fasteners. Special torque values are indicated in the maintenance
procedures for applicable components. The general torque values given in this appendix shall be used when specific
torque values are not indicated in the maintenance procedures.
E-2. TORQUE LIMITS.
Torque limits are listed below. Dry fasteners are defined as fasteners on which no lubricants are applied to the threads;
wet fasteners are defined as fasteners on which specific graphite or moly-disulphide greases or other extreme-pressure
lubricants are applied to the threads. There is no difference in Table E-1 between the torque figures for fine or coarse
threads. The torque figures for a finely-threaded fastener as compared to a coarsely-threaded fastener of the same
diameter may be slightly higher and are not defined.
