a Specified Torque Because the length of the tool required to tighten the nut will affect the observed torque reading on the torque wrench, the torque reading should be computed using the length of the torque wrench and the nominal specified torque as follows using tool T66P-3553-B:
   the torque reading equals (length of torque wrench x 72 lb-ft) divided by (length of torque wrench + 5.5 inches).
