    Default Can you re torque a bolt?

    Put 2 bolts in the wrong way while attaching lift strut fittings on my spar and torqued them. Is it ok to loosen and switch it around the correct way and re-torque? Thx

    As long as the bolts were not overtorqued and don't have any damage from installation or removal there shouldn't be any problem reusing them. Same with the nuts, as long as the locking portion prevents turning them all the way on by hand they should be able to be reused, though it doesn't hurt to put new ones on.
