Been doin' more research and it seems there is a "dry" and a "lubricated" number, the lubricated number being lower. I use anti-seize on all my bolts, so I guess mine are lubricated??? I guess I need to drill and tap a piece of aluminum and strip some threads or twist off some bolt heads. This torque stuff is more complicated the deeper I look, but I'm in it to learn, so I''l dig a little deeper. Happy Trails Walter F.
