How important is this? It's close enough to 50/50 that I can't see why anyone would care about the error.

M8 pinch bolts are generally around 20 N-m. You were over 30.

What issue of the Clymer, and what page, were you reading that says 29~33 ft-kb? That sounds like a number for an M10 clamp bolt.

I suspect the reasons it's not a popular aftermarket part is that 1) it's already a strong aluminum casting, and 2) each version of the top clamp (there are two) was only in use for a few years.

976 are just the rubber caps.
998 seems to be what you want. Pretty expensive, though. You might be able to repair the ones you break, with a bit of brass tubing or something.
