Default oliver rod torque question

oliver says to torque 7/16 rod bolts to 30ft lbs then go another 42 degrees. the digital snap on torque wrench that we have dont measure degrees. does anyone know what ft lb the extra 42 degrees would equal out to? tried a old school degree wheel on the torque wrench but it wasnt even making it to 42 degrees and the wrench was reading 100+ ft lbs

Get a torque angle gauge or a stretch gauge and do it right

I played that game with my Oliver rods, the Tq. angle was a PIA. I ended up stretching them.

Get a strech gauge and do it that way. Not that hard, takes a little longer. The life of your rods and engine depend on it. You have a top of the line rod, treat it that way.

Depends on which bolt you have. Our WSB's usually get the correct stretch about 88lbs.

I got my torque angle gauge from Goodson, but Snap On has a nice one too. You need to either do the angle method or stretch em, one of the 2.
