Recommended Posts

Greetings AL members,

I am on the hunt to buy a “ Torque Wrench and a Dial Gauge Indicator” that  I will be using for an engine rebuild. Is there anything I should be aware of, what type should I go for ? any place you may recommend???  To be honest I have never used any of these instruments before …:unsure:.. Please be kind enough to share your info and experience. Thank you.. :D

The Torque Wrench (US branded Taiwan made such as Crossman)  as pictured is available in some tools shops in Panchikawatta.  I have not seen the same dial gauge locally by may be available.

Norbar torque wrenches at ACP can't go wrong ;) the cheap ones are cheap for a reason. They aren't pre calibrated or accurate at all.

I get my tools from "New Lanka Tools" which is on Prince's Gate, just a stone's throw from AC Paul's. They are generally reliable and their prices are good. Give it a shot and see.

Hi,

I am planning to purchase the ACDelco Torque Wrench. 

Or

Would it be good to go for a classical one 13 - 250 Nm2

Use: General repairs of the vehicle ......I can ask my Mechanic to use this thing :)
