    remember inch pounds are very light compared to ft pounds.
    its plastic, dont try to torque to ft lbs or you will crack something, or worse strip out the threads

    +1 Thats always been my motto also, reguardless if its, moto, guns or watercraft. IIRC using Loctite will make your torque readings off a little. This is bad advice, but I use a very small 1/4 ratchet to get a just over snug/tightness on all the bolts except engine internals that REQUIRE a exact torque. I have not stripped any bolts out with this method and the Loctite helps to make sure they they tight. I also use a small rechargeable 1/4 ratchet that doesnt have enough power to get you into trouble. I never use air powered tools on aluminum.
