No, this was very good information. I see it fitting in nicely with the "True
North", "Owl", and "Wench" threads when the bands are dormant!

I really don't think we need to worry about precise torquing of tower bolts,
let alone bolt stretch. Seem a little overkill for tower bolts! Just snug
I just could not resist throwing in the bolt strech info, I hope everyone
realized that I was jesting by my ;-) at the end of the email.
We do use a bolt strech gauge when putting together motors for our blown
alcohol dragster. As Hans noted, ARP (racing bolt mfgr) does give a spec for
them to be stretched to depending on material and diameter.
