Inch Lbs to Ft Lbs conversion???Wise Guy
Apr 6, 2002 2:22 PM
I want to be able to use my torque wrench for tightening crank bolts. My torque wrench uses a Ft Lbs scale and the crank instructions are in Inch Lbs. Does anyone know the conversion factor??

Thanks
Since there are 12 inches in a foot:Alexx

Then, ergo, 1 foot*lb = 12 inch*pounds
(torque = force*distance)
