  1. Well sir when torquing bolts into nut plates or where there are screws to be torqued they will have a specified torque which is usually pretty low, for the screws, so I would not really worry about it. I was talking about nuts and bolts. If I have a nut and a bolt that go together the nut is torqued not the bolt. There are also a lot of other items that get thrown into the equation such as bolt length, material of bolt and nut, material of pieces being held together and such. All play a factor in the torquing. It was just in my experience being a AP certified mechanic that you torque nuts not bolts but I have never torn apart a accord engine before so I will concede to your higher wisdom.
