Where has every one gone to for information??

I am doing my conditional on 601 XL B ( 2007 Model ) and found the right upper outboard wing attach bolt took 90 drgrees to tighten to 125 in./ lbs.

I have found one or two needed 45 to 60 deg. to meet the torque requirements several years before but this year only the one was needing re-torqued.

Has anyone experienced this??

Is there a more active list for maintenance information.

I would appreciate a heads up.

Thanks.

I'm still here and have a similar model plane.  I don't recall torquing the attach bolts.  I just felt them and they were tight.  Remember the only real load on those bolts is in shear on the bolt shaft rather than tension on the nuts.
I had difficulty drilling the holes for those bolts so I wound up using larger diameter bolts.  My situation may be different from yours. 

Perhaps you should put some medium (blue) loctite on those bolts to keep the nuts in place?
