You actually over tighten and can potentially stretch the stud beyond it's state of elasticity resulting in insufficient clamping force and a permanently deformed stud. Repeat this over enough cycles and the stud will eventually fail.

The torque spec would need to be de-rated for lubed fasteners to ensure the correct clamping force without risking damaging the hardware. In the cases where assembly lube is required the manufacturer will always provide very specific instructions on what to use, where to apply it and in what quantity.

I've never seen any vehicle manufacturer recommend lubing wheel studs.
we also have problems with our rims on our race team's cars due to over torquing, it causes the acorn seat on the rim to flatten out and then the lug nut doesn't seat tightly on the wheel causing a slight wobble, putting a lot of stress on that wheel makes it progressively wobble more and eventually rip the wheel causing a flying wheel and a bunch of damage, usually needs new studs and lug nuts at minimum... but that's in racing application so the stress we put on these cars isnt typical.

$34? l already bought one last month after my son took mine. It is a lot better than the 12V one
My local HD had the inflator for $47.52

I'd rather have this than pay at the gas station now that they've all installed those pay per use inflators.

Also I stacked with my $5 email signup coupon for purchases over $50 :)

That makes sense... The fluid would decrease friction in between the threads. If someone is using a torque wrench set to manufacturers spec, I'd bet money that it wouldn't damage it.

I just unpacked mine and noticed a burning smell from the motor. Also small sparks flying from the vent. It's my first impact wrench but I doubt that's normal. Probably gonna return it.

If it ain't brushless, that's normal. DC brushed motor produce sparks. The burning smell is probably because it's new and will go away. Don't worry about it.

I think it is normal. That burning smell is the lube oil.

If you run any brushed drill/driver in dark, I bet you will see sparks all the time, any brand.

Unless you return for a brushless one.

exactly. I think HD puts this one onsale so that could have space for brushless ones.

This was my first foray into Ryobi. Most of my tools are Milwaukee and I'm assuming brushless as well.

The rigid impact for 179 has a battery and charger value of 149. What do I get back if I return the battery and charger?
