There should be either a pin or part of a ball sticking out, just like a ratchet, it all depends on the model..If you just see a hole, you lost the part. You will need the socket retainer, the spring and the retainer for these parts.

Handle came loose on my craftsman torque wrench. What is the proper way to replace it? I noticed that the nut on the inside came loose. If I re-tighten the nut will it effect the torque calibration? I

I had this problem with mine as well. Most are threaded into the case and don't have nuts inside. I took each bolt out one at a time and cleaned and coated with Blue lock tight and torque back in to factory spec. Just get them snug don't over tighten. Do one at a time so it doesn't come apart. I would have tool recalibrated or at least check it behind a known good torque wrench

Need to know the tool to remove top bolt from starter on a 1986 325e bmw

Your description leaves details to be desired, but based on what you described, It could be one of several things.

It could be an external torx fiting which would require an e-socket to remove.
It could be an internal torx bolt, in which case you would need a proper sized torx bit to remove (Torx socket)
It could also be a castle nut, though these are generally only found on spindles and tie rod ends, etc.. These have a cotter pin running through them that have to be pulled and then you can remove the nut.

If you take this wrench apart you will find cut outs where the air is pushed through when these Chinese pieces of fie work punched out the medal they left the punched out part in the wheel thus you do not get the torque. I removed the pieces and it functioned OK. Not the best wrench. Sorry quality control usually CH is better about quality.

You can purchase a repair kit from Ingersol that will have the spring and pin. You will need to make sure the fitting on the inlet that has the screen installed is still there or the pin and spring will come out again

Wrench question

An air-powered impact wrench runs off of an air compressor with a tank – the air compressor should have at least a 10 gallon tank and be able to generate at least 3hp. Also, an impact wrench requires special sockets that are designed to withstand the high torque applied by the wrench.
