tightening conversion table

Hi All
does anyone have a torque conversion table from NM to inch/pounds and foot/pounds. All my torque wrenches are SAE. I'm re-installing the rear wheel and what to make sure its right.
Thanks for any help

Re: tightening conversion table

The conversion is 1 newton meter equals .737 foot pounds. If you have 100 newton meters that would be 73.7 foot pounds. I usually just round off to .75 for easy math.

Re: tightening conversion table

Here are a couple of torque charts I built years ago.

They were both created a few years ago and I think a couple of values to do with front or rear suspension were changed for the 2005 and later models. When I get near a manual tonight, I will verify.
