What is 110nm torque in american Ft/Pounds?

I have an american torque wrench. Performing a brake pad and rotor job on the X. Internet instructions call for 110nm (Nano Meters) on the wrench for the caliper mount bracket bolts. What is that, converted to Ft/Pounds on my POS american Craftsman torque wrench. (hahahaa..)

No seriously.. (hehee..) I"m "that close" to having the job doable for me. The X is all apart in the garage as I type. :-)

Conversion Nm to ft-lb

Caliper to steering knuckle 110 Nm - 81 ft-lb
Road wheel to hub 140 Nm - 101. ft-lb


To convert N.m. to ft lb multiple N.m. by a factor of (0.737)
For example: 55Nm = 55 x 0.737 = (40.535 ft lb)

Perfect! Thanks so much. Heading off to the garage for a day of being crouched under the wheel wells.. Yes!

I think I got the Nano term wrong. Is it Newton Meters?
