Yes, I was just over tightened it.. I hate aluminum for this reason:banghead:

Yeah aluminum will give with a quickness....I'm an Airframer with the Navy and know this very well. I suggest to not even use a torque wrench for tightening things such as drain plugs and oil filter cover bolts...I make them "snug" and call it a day. However, I must say after all these years I think my elbow is calibrated.:D

It took me 9 years of being an Air Framer in the Marine Corps to get a calibrated elbow.
