Yeah, 60-65 ft/lbs on those MGB lugs Ron.  I use a little lube on mine when putting them back on too, haven't had one come off yet but my Dad had a wheel come off an old Model A one time, saw it spinning down the road in front of him.  

I have three torque wrenches, but my favorite is this old clicker Craftsman.  I can't remember when I got it.  I like it better than a deflection beam. 3/8" adapter makes it versatile.  I treat it like gold, set it to zero after use and wipe it down.

Bear knocked down my bird feeder again last night.  I just put it up again, don't even bother to level it anymore.

No, I have to build something to attach it to in order to get it close enough. I have about five videos using the game camera to capture bears doing their thing. One is pretty impressive, on his back legs standing up and towering over the feeder. Big bear.
