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?

'14 1500 V6, '17 3500 C&C, plus a '19 3500 6.4 in the household.

Yep, I found the table above and used some simple math to use a crows foot to torque mine down. The nut on the passenger side of the adjust sleeve came loose on mine. I cleaned the threads out with some IPA, applied red loctite, and torqued her down. Been fine for over 5k miles so far. Mine came loose with around 55k on the truck.

Sure beats some tech slapping on some booger welds...
