I recently bought a 5 speed 1991 190e 2.6 with all the torques in Nm, but my torque wrench is in Ft/Lbs. How do I get there from here?

I was also wondering what to use to lube the throttle linkage.

Multiply the ft-lbs by 1.3558 and get the approximate N-m conversion....

25 ft-lbs = 33.9 (34) N-m.

Hope this helps,

I have a Haynes book that says:

NM's x .788 = ft lbs, and in the tables it shows both, like 10 NM = 7 ft lbs.

It says "white lithium grease" for the throttle linkage.

Isaac Newton was a famous physicist (maybe English) who is famous for saying the following "something will stay in motion indefinately unless acted upon by an equal and opposite force".. Something like that, NOT EXACT...

Anyway N-M is a unit of energy

1 N-m = 0.7376 ft-lbf

Yes Mattsuzie, he was indeed an Englishman, born in Lincolnshire I believe. Also famous for loafing about under fruit trees and being pelted with apples, . . . . . or something !
