 Posted by: calrgl99 ® 04/22/2005, 08:52:44 Author Profile Mail author Edit I need to do a tightening test on a battry hold down bar. The bar is held down with 2 M6 nuts. I must apply a load of 1323 N to the top of the battery to verify the amount of deformation that will occur to the battery and bar contact surface. What is the torque on one nut in Ft.# or In.# required to apply a load of 1323 N (297#) to the top of the battery surface? Equal resultant torque will be applied to both nuts during test.
