Seth, I have some of those twisty Allens, Torx also (GM Brakes).eye popping smiley

66, if I can not get to 50 ft-lbs with both hands (one on each wrench) then I prop the shorter wrench against the vise or other immovable object. No problem!grinning smiley Remember, the 15/16 combination wrench is at least 12" long.

The last one I tightened with an impact came loose on me. I am always cautious to not over tighten with an impact (too many wrung off fasteners by other people in my life). That's when I went back to torque wrench method.

I myself have not tryed this method ,I use a impact but for those that dont have one I saw a tip where you use a fan bet(old)and wrap it around the pulley and clamp the belt as close to the pulleyin a vise.It's supposed to hold the pulley tight enough to loosen the nut on the pulley. If some one trys this let me,us know if it works.
