 Need formula for torque conversion Post Reply Forum
 Posted by: RICK@SPM ® 12/08/2004, 13:27:04 Author Profile Mail author Edit I have a project were, I need to torque down a 1-3/4" nut. EZ My problem is -I am using a standard torque wrench and have to use a crows foot or open end wrench adapter, so the torque is different? Right?   I understand there is a formula to figure it out , but I don't know where to look, If anyone can help I do appreciate it.

Simply put, if the standard  (normal application) distance of  force to bolt centerline is d1,  and the actual distance is d2, then the torque setting is diminished in  the ratio of  d2/d1.
