Tom,

I found it in the owners download section. You need 550NM or 406 ft-lbs.

I think I found the correct torque wrench. Most of the large 1" torque wrenches are only one-directional and cost a whopping $1800. That is too much for occasional use

I ordered the torque wrench I found. I think there is only one manufacturer in the world that makes a 1" torque wrench that is not 1000-2000 LB/FT. This one is 600 LB/FT (406 is needed for the Spyker wheels) and has a ratchet head (so it will work clockwise as well as counter-clockwise).

It should arrive this week, so I will post an update next weekend

Is your laptop so small? Or is the torque wrench so large?

BTW Nice piece of tool

Can you believe I still have not used the torque wrench. I hope I have some spare time this weekend. Next weekend I'm flying to Europe, the weekend after that is short, but after that the long summer weekends start
