    I was going to guess around 200 Nm, which is the spec for the Subaru I just did. Those numbers are somewhat higher, you're going to need a big torque wrench.

    I don't know about that. Your mixed unit calculations seem very accurate.

    How about a friend weighing 240lb standing on the end of a 1 foot bar connected to a 35mm socket?

    That would be a tad over 109Kgs on the end of a 30.48cm bar - but the force must be at the very end point!!!

    Yeh, I know. You'd have to allow for that in the bar length or find a very large ballerina who can balance on her toes.

    26.5 kg-m = 259.876225 Nm according to the French 405 manual once I worked out what the hell they were talking about.
