    Is there a website a JL owner can access that displays the torque settings for a JL? Iíve tried a couple of times to find out if theyíre going to release a FSM but so far no one at FCA knows and some donít know the difference between a FSM and an owners manual.

Went out and bought a new Craftsman and checked torque and then used the Tekton again to verify and sure enough it was not clicking or stopping at the designated setting.

    Have to retract my retraction. Had another look at my Tekton after I noticed the brand new Craftsman wasnít stopping after clicking. Turns out the locking knob wasnít adjusted right. Fixed the locking knob at bottom of handle and tested on a bolt I have already torqued to spec and what do you know it works. Craftsman went back to Sears and Tekton went back into service.

    And Overlander you are correct those Craftsman torque wrenches are absolute junk.
