Default BFTW, what did you use

I need to source a BFTW

Torque spec for the crank pulley bolt is 309 ft/lbs. What have you used for a torque wrench, those of you who have removed the crank pulley that is. Buy, rent?

$489 is the best "deal" I've found so far. This appears to be non lableled Cornwell wrench. Same part number anyway. I'm sure Cornwell buys and relabels the tool.

call around to the car parts stores that rent tools first, but if not, fleetpride here in denver (303 288 8108) has 100-600# tw advertised for $354.95, or you can get a torque multiplier for a few bucks less.

Own it..
copy and paste...
Description:
TECHANGLE™ FEATURES
The Snap-on TechAngle™ wrench eliminates the need for angle gauges and protractors, providing the most accurate and fastest way to achieve torque plus angle tightening sequences now specified by many manufacturers. Digital readout shows you your torque setting, and then changes to the follow up angle you desire. Not affected by ratcheting. Angle calculation based on the same gyroscope technology that keeps helicopters flying level.
• Applications include head bolts on trucks, passenger vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles and ATV's.
• Torque accuracy 2%CW, 3% CCW, 20% to 100% of full scale.
• Angle accuracy 1% of reading 1 @ angular velocity >10/sec <180/sec
• Each button has ONLY one function (power on, select unit of measure, increase/decrease fastener torque setting, increase/decrease fastener angle setting).
• Four-digit LCD Display shows unit of measure, angle, CCW and battery condition.
• All models include 3 “AA” batteries for power.
• Comfortable, non-slip grip handle.
• Stand on handle bottom keeps tool from rolling off flat surface.
• Seal key pad keeps out dust and grit prolonging tool life.
• High strength, sealed, ratchet head eliminates routine maintenance.
• Flex-head ratchet moves 15 in both directions.
• All models have a Low Battery Indicator and Auto Shut-off (after 2 minutes idle).
• Designed to withstand shocks without failure.
• Splash-proof, protects against water and most shop chemicals.
• Complies with ISO-6789-2003 and ASME B107-28-2005 Standards.
• EU/CE—DE, ES, FR, IT, NL, PT, UK.
• Includes storage case.
• Additional technical information is available at www.snapon.com/torque/techangle and www.torqueinlesstime.com.

I've never in my life used a torque wrench on a crank bolt and I've done my fair share of engines. A little dab of light duty locktite and a good 250 ft lb impact wrench will ensure it stays on forever.

The problem with that Randy on the 1FZ is that the drive gear for the oil pump and power steering is not keyed. It is held in spot by the torqued nut/ clamping the vibration damptner to the drive gear, that must be torqued to that number of 309. If the drive gear was Key, there would be no problem with doing your method. A few people have done you method and they lost oil pressure and power steering boost. I do know of a couple people that lost the bottom end bearing because of your method.

I checked with NAPA yesterday regarding renting one. They do not. But referred me to someone who might. I will check with them Monday. This is a tool I'd like to own but its alot of $$$. Then considering how often I use my other smaller torque wrenchs this one would probably just look pretty in the tool box the rest of its life.

That would be a bummer, sounds like another good reason to stay with the ol' 2F
