I have a few owners manuals for older cars that must have been way ahead of their time, because they include torque specs for all kinds of fasteners on the vehicle. Same with old shop manuals.
If anything, it seems to me that while there used to be torque values given for almost everything in the past, now they are harder to come by.
To get the correct torque value when using a torque wrench on a crow foot is easy. It only requires basic knowledge of geometry.
Or, it can also be achieved by taking the added length into account if having the crow foot in line with the torque wrench.
Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?
