    Popping on deceleration is a mixture which is too lean to run in the combustion chamber so it waits until it hits the hot exhaust.

    Put the questionable battery on a maintainer or proper charger and see what its doing the next morning. 13.3 is right in that magic range which shouts, "Dead Cell!"

    That I've seen Bakelite is brown, brittle, and deteriorates in UV.
    Then again rubber deteriorates in UV.

    Lots of search engine hits on "hard rubber steering wheel"

    You have proven the problem is not the battery? A perfect stator can't punch a battery with dead cell much over 13.2V.

    9.8 is only 2% off 10. Your torque wrench is not that accurate. Use "M KGS" and shift a decimal point. You are overthinking it.

    For 30 Nm use 3.0 M-kg.
