It's about 26Ft*Lbf

How tight that is really depends on the application and fastener.

I just saw your previous post. I would not bother torquing that one if you dont have a torque wrench handy.If you really want to go for it. you would problaby have to go a little tighter to line up the holes anyway. like the german mechanics would say make it gutentite. :brow:

39 Nm = 39 Newtons placed one meter away
2.67 ~=3 pounds placed one foot away
use a breaker bar and a fish scale if no torque wrench
for small measurements you could use inch pounds
