I'm too inexperienced, so I'm gonna need another torque wrench that will measure the 14ft/lbs I need. Mine bottoms out at 20 and has a long handle. If I put that cover back without complete confidence I'll be bugged by it all the time.

(Philosophy for ecomodders: I think part of good modding and maintaining, like life, is knowing how and when to compensate for our limits. Knowing the "when" might be the trickiest part. But the experience of failures builds an "intuition" like sense of when we need assistance with a task.)
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
