>No offense to anyone out there but I love the name of that item. A buddy who worked on helicopters in Viet Nam told me they were torqued to about 300 pounds (if anyone knows for certain let me know) and they often used a black plumbing pipe as an extender on a torque wrench so one guy could lever it to the specification. What I heard was that that was the first word out of the mouth of the pilot who lost one. I guess there is a "dung" bolt out there and the name was taken.
