Question about 2005 Ford Falcon
Hub nut setting
It is possible to use a simple torque wrench extension bar, which fits onto the square drive of the torque wrench.
At the other end of the extension bar is a male square drive for the socket. This increases the leverage of the torque wrench by a ratio which is the total length of the wrench plus bar divided by the length of the torque wrench only. You multiply the torque reading by this ratio.
Note that NO increased torque is obtained by fitting an extension on the handle end of the torque wrench. The applied torque will still be the same as the torque wrench reading in this case.
Then there is a more expensive tool, a torque multiplier. These are often fitted to the output shafts of winches etc, and consist of a small gearbox which fits on the square drive of the torque wrench. On the other side is a male square drive for the socket.
They are geared in various multiplier ratios from 4:1 to as much as 40:1. On the gearbox casing is a reaction bar which is braced against something to keep it in place as the torque is applied.
They are expensive but you can hire them also.

Tightening torque for the hub nut is 200Nm and the road wheels are 85Nm
NOTE: The rear wheel bearings are remowned on these cars for sticking to the stub axle quite badly, and often have to be forced off using a slide hammer on the drum, it is quite common to end up damaging the wheel bearing, so be prepared to replace this as well in this event

The torque for the front drive shaft and hub retaining nut is 155ft.lbs. But if you are on the metric system,
it's 210N.m . These specs are for both 1999 and 2001
Hope this helps. Good luck.
