We need to torque bolts holding teeth in a conveyor drive sprocket, but there is not enough room to fit the head of the torque wrench on the nut (the bolt head is head by the tooth casting). I have heard of a method to estimate torque by counting the number of turns after finger tight. How would this work for an M20 bolt that needs to be torqued to 300 ft lb?
