    I watched that RK video previously. Getting 200ft.lbs of torque on that jam nut using one hand on the wrench while holding a bar through the joint with the other for counter torque didn't seem like a good method to me unless you had forearms like Popeye. Not to mention it seemes like you would be applying unnecessary stress on that flex joint.

    I can tell watching that video and using my finely calibrated elbow grease torque gage eye, that didn't look anywhere close to 200ft.lbs of torque.
