    Just installed my new Hepco-Becker engine bars and have NO idea what to torque the fasteners to. What is the conversion from Nm to Ft Lbs??

    Need to convert; 12 Nm, 27Nm,40 Nm and 48Nm to ft pounds.

    Thank You in advance......... FN in MT

    You ought to think about getting an inch pound torque wrench... 17Nm and 27Nm are the lower end of a workable ft lb wrench.

    No it took 10 metric minutes to reply. This was a metric question, if it had been an imperial timing issue then it would have been 60 minutes or 24 hours or 7 days or 28/29/30/31 days or 1 year to get an answer. Now if that had been rod to poles it would have been ...

    The additional displayed minute is due to resolution and uncertainty issues.

    It is usually faster to DIY otherwise you'd never clean your desk.
