Shit, I'd be worried the bolt would snap off trying to get the 140* versus "as tight as I can get it" and if it does, you'd be replacing a crank and a fender for sure. I wouldn't lose any sleep over a pinned crank and as tight as hell!

Don't use Impact guns to tighten the Crank Bolt.....Take a peek at the mating surface of the Crank Bolt - See that red stuff there? Now look at a used version of same bolt - notice the difference? Using a Impact Gun will not allow that mating surface to do what its designed to do. Not to mention that you can jack up those crank threads. Also, get the Flywheel locking tool and use a 4-5' Pipe to give you more leverage.
