I have a project were, I need to torque down a 13/4" 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.

The torque setting is inversely proportional to the distance from the bolt centerline to the point of force application. 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.
