Icon5 Torque Specifications

I'm about to be opening the motor up soon, and I'd like to know if anyone knows where I can find a decent CHEAP dial-in torque wrench. I'm afraid of over/undertightening everything, but at the same time, I'm not spending over 100 dollars on a damn wrench/ratchet. Anyone know of any good alternatives? Think maybe I could rent one from autozone or advanced auto parts?

dont rent one, just buy one. prolly one of the best investments for a driveway mechanic.
my normal craftsman 3/8" drive was like $70, but you could also go with the ballin digital ones for who knows how much. BUT.... mine only goes as low as 20ft-lbs, and i'm guessing some of the vital engine components would require less torque than that.

it says the 3/8" drive one goes down to 25 in-lbs. Wouldn't 25 in/lbs be equal to just over 2 ft/lbs? If that's the case than that is probably fine for engine internals.

it says the 3/8" drive goes from 25-250 in/lbs, and the 1/2" drive goes from 20-150 ft/lbs, so if you have both, you're pretty much set for many different situations, since by my calculations 240 in/lbs equals 20 ft/lbs. That means with both ratchets you have everything from 2-150 ft/lbs covered.

This is what Honda used when building the Integra Type R, it costs much as a 3g Lude! :sick:
