Scope:

This SAE Information Report is provided as an advisory guide. Individual application discretion is recommended. The content has been presented as accurately as possible, but responsibility for its application lies with the user. The document covers the variables in the torque-tension relationship: friction, materials, temperature, humidity, fastener and mating part finishes, surfaces, and the kind of wrenching employed.

Also, described in this document is the torque management required to achieve correct fastener joint tightening.

The thread fit of fasteners must be in accordance with Class 2A for external and Class 2B for internal inch threads.

Rationale:

This revision is limited in scope. Section 5.4 (Check Procedure) has been removed from this Information Report. It was determined to be outside the scope as an advisory guide.
