Well this was a fun one to make. I believe I covered everything but if you
feel I haven't please let me know in the comments below as well as any tips
you might have to add as well. I'm not trying to make a big deal about
"pound feet" or "foot pounds" I'm just trying to put that out there, the
important thing is that you get the proper torque and get the job done
right in my opinion, what you decide to call it is up to you.

Black Beauty: 1966 Chevelle Malibu - /BIG MUSCLE
• ENZO MORALES
A long wheelbase, v8 or v12 power, front engine/rear drive configuration,
and a sport-tuned suspension with four comfy seats inside. That ladies and
gentlemen is the recipe for any good grand touring car. Modern automobiles
like the Mercedes-Benz CL63, BMW M6 and the Bentley Continental GT are
perfect examples of this. How about a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu though
- what about that? When released in 1966, this 2nd generation Chevelle was
nothing more than a mid-priced, nicely appointed people mover with some
decent styling. However now, some 47 years later, owner Enzo Morales has
transformed this particular car into a jaw-dropping, hardcore styled road
burner that is just as happy running the super-slab at triple digits as it
is carving up your favorite back road.

Candy Brandywine 71 Chevelle SS Vert on 24" Forgiatos Pt. 1 - 1080p HD
WORK DONE BY ULTIMATE AUDIO. 803-359-0007
Quick video of the 1971 Candy Brandywine CUSTOM Chevrolet Chevelle SS
Convertible, sitting on staggered Forgiato Azioni 24's! Back rims were a
24x11" wheel. This is the same Chevelle done by Ultimate Audio, but it was
red/black on 24" Bonspeed wheels. Now it has a WET candy apple red paint
job, insides been done with diamond stitching, and new trunk setup, Wilwood
big disc brake kit on front and back, and of course NEW Forgiato wheels!
You'll see more a detailed video on part 2! But this video he was driving
it around, doing small burnouts here and there! Straight turning the tires.
572 BBC is NO JOKE!! And excuse the fast paste part around 2:37, had to
speed up the video to get past me jogging to see him turning it around lol.
ALSO... The dash is from a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu. And it IS a 71 Chevelle
with a 1970 front clip and back clip. This Chevelle is owned by the Thomas
Davis on the Carolina Panthers.
How to use a torque wrench
How to use a torque wrench
This video from Norbar Torque Tools, the world's torque specialists, takes
you through the best practice use of a Norbar Torque Wrench.
The most common wrench is called a click wrench. It will indicate by a
mechanical mechanism when a pre-set torque has been reached. The pre-set
value can be set by the user, or by a Quality Control Department. The
second most common torque wrench is used to check an already tightened
It can have a mechanical or electronic sensing mechanism and can display by
means of an electronic or analogue display. There are other tools referred
to as "torque wrenches". These are powered by pressurised oil or air and
are known as hydraulic or pneumatic torque wrenches. The use of these
devices is more complex and will be covered in a later article.
Most torque wrenches are used for tightening nuts and bolts accurately
although there are also some other uses. These other uses will be discussed
in another article. There are two main reasons why we use a torque wrench.
One reason is to achieve the correct level of tightness. The bolt needs to
be stretched to create a clamping force on the assembly. If the torque
value is too low, the assembly will not be secure. If the torque is too
high, the bolt may break. The torque wrench allows the operator to tighten
the bolt as the designer intended.
The other reason to use a torque wrench is to be consistent on every bolt
in the assembly. Used properly the torque wrench will ensure that all bolts
have the same torque applied.
The effect of badly tightened bolts can be seen in lost time, money and
lives. A machine stops working and takes weeks to repair. A bridge
collapses. A wheel comes free from a truck and hits a car travelling in the
other direction. Good quality torque wrenches do save time, money and
The largest part of the uncertainty comes from the operator. Problems will
arise if the torque value cannot be set correctly. Unfortunately many
wrenches have a scale that is difficult to read, or becomes worn away with
use. It can also be difficult to position the cursor accurately. Some
wrenches have a vernier scale to help. These will only work with one set of
units. Be sure whether the vernier is designed for the N.m, kgf.m or lbf.ft
The operator will also affect the torque by using the wrench too fast. The
"click" wrench is designed to give a physical signal when the desired
torque is reached. If the wrench is operated too quickly, the torque will
go too high before the operator can stop.
With dial or electronic indicating wrenches, the operator must be able to
see the dial or display. This can be difficult in applications where there
is poor light or limited access. Finally the operator must apply a smooth
and slow force at 90 degrees to the wrench. Side loads can alter the torque
applied and may cause the wrench to slip off the bolt.
There are many different styles and qualities of torque wrench available.
With the correct selection, operation and maintenance, a torque wrench can
save you time and money. To make the correct decisions you may need to seek
the advice of specialist torque tool provider like Norbar Torque Tools.

1970 Chevelle: Refined Muscle - /BIG MUSCLE
When it comes to muscle cars technology can be a double-edged sword. On the
one hand it can enhance all aspects of a vehicles drivability, but on the
other, it can strip the soul from a car in no time flat. Few people have
been able to blend new technology, luxury and speed into a package that
just flat-out works. Mark Bachman however is the exception. With a stunning
interior, loads of grunt and just about every modern convenience you could
ask for, his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has managed to blur the lines between
old and new.
Hot Rod Time Machine: Old vs New
Just How Good Were the Good Ol' Days? To find out, we've gathered three
modern high-spec ponycars and matched them with their glory days ancestors.
We're pitting a 2011 Camaro SS against the '69 Camaro SS396 that inspired its
design; a 2011 Challenger SRT8 meets the '70 Challenger it so faithfully
resembles; and a freshly minted Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible meets its

The Cars of Queens: Part I - /BIG MUSCLE
Before BIG MUSCLE had its feet planted firmly in West Coast soil, it was
stationed here... in beautiful Queens, NY. Now while most people would
never think of Queens as a destination spot, believe me when I tell you
that in this land of graffiti, window bars and padlocks lies some of the
coolest muscle cars that you're ever likely to see. This is Part I of BIG
MUSCLEs two part episode on the "Cars of Queens". In this episode we take a
look at a wicked 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS drop-top and a stunning 1968
Dodge Coronet R/T. Both cars have been updated accordingly in all
departments and both cars were conceived to be, at their cores, bad-ass New
York street fighters.
