Any Alouette tech's out there that could answer this question? When torqueing the blades pins to the proper torque during installation, some of the pins torqued out with the pin still about 2 or 3 mm from being fully seated. After a test run up the washers on those pins spun freely thus zero torque after the run up. The book doesn't elaborate on proceedure other than to torque them to the specification. I suppose one could tighten the pins until they are flush then back them off and retorque to the proper spec's but that isn't stated. What did the "old pro's" do?
