As you havent yet done the angular torqueing you may not
have taken the bolts into stretch mode... If you watched the
dial as you turned up to 60lb and it rose steadily then your
probably in the safe elastic region of the bolt..So in my
oppinion you could  slacken  and retorque . If Loren is
correct and you have simply (in effect) started the angular
'bit' then just take this off the inital angular turn. If it
took 3 turns to reach 60 lb then the bolts can be removed
and feathers stuck on the end and used as arrows ;o)
You'll have to say to the wife  "Dont talk to me whilst I'm

Good luck
