2001 Chorus hubs servicingHiggins

I have Chorus hubs on my bike, and I'd like to service them. The instructions per the Campy website say you only need two 5mm allen keys, and a 2.5mm allen key. However, it goes on to suggest that a torque wrench should be used for some of the procedure. Can anyone tell me if this is correct? Where would I get such a tool from?

If Campy instructions say to use a torque wrench for tightening something it has to be "correct". Whether it's necessary depends on your mechanical skills. Some folks never use a torque wrench without problem. The rest post inquiries about how to remove broken bolts.

Torque wrenches are available from Sears or online bike shops like Excel Sports. A 5mm allen key socket is also a common item at Sears.
