Question F8GS Tool Question

Manual calls for the lock nut on the chain adjustment bolt to be tightened to 19nm.

Anyone know a good place to find an open-end torque wrench?

TIA

You can buy Crowfoot adapters for use with any torque wrench. You must apply a correction factor to the torque setting to account for the change in the lever-arm distance.

Here's an example of crowsfoot adapters.

That said, get a feel for how tight it is a couple times, and then do it by hand thereafter.

Or, just be normal and snug it with a regular wrench.

If you want to be technical, a solid German Guddentight is more than enough.
