Glad you asked cuz I got my Haynes manual out yesterday to help me locate the front band adjustment bolt, and I'm quite certain I found it.
I had my torque wrench ready, but it appears that the front band adjustment bolt is a stud with an 8-mm square end on it. So, before I loosened the jam nut, without any luck, I tried to fit a few hex sockets onto the square stud end to see if they'd bite enough so I'd be able to use my torque wrench to torque it to 72 in-lb (like you said). I don't think they make 8 pt sockets any more, so what kind of socket am I supposed to use with my torque wrench to achieve torque before turning it back 3X (btw-Haynes says 2-7/8 turns but probly doesn't matter much). Is there something I'm not seeing here, such as a nut underneath the jam/lock nut? Thanks
