Bill,

I meant stretch the bolt too much. The torque specs are designed to adequately lock the bolt given the application without excessively stretching the fastener so that it becomes prone to failure.

OH MACK! WHEREFORE ART THOU!?!

Zerodog,

I recall the countershaft has some radial (?) play, if I used that wrong it slides in and out a tad. Perhaps the spring washer continues to allow it to do that while still applying load upon the seal... get it? What happens when you essentially stop the CS from moving back and forth?
