Safety Notes
These values are given in lb-ft and apply to clean smooth lubricated threads on NEW fasteners.
The nut and washer must have equal or greater rating then the bolt.
Consult your manual for material type.
The values are for the fastener not the assembly.  Some assembles can not with stand the maximum clamping force.
The values for fine treads are slightly higher.
