100 ft-lb. You can usually ask your favorite search engine “137 nm in ft-lb” and get an answer.

Greetings:

NM = 0.7376 Ft-Lbs. So 101.

<pedant> It's pound-foot, not foot-pound. </pedant>

If you have to ask, you're using a torque wrench, which even in the US should have Nm as well as lbft marked on its scale.

the proper torque for the rear wheel is three pneumatic seconds with the rattle gun set to "kill".

don't forget the castle keeper and split pin!

Forgive me greasy, what is the "castle keeper"? I can't find the equivalent term.
However i still use in kilograms / meter to measure the torque, i suppose it is habit.

I always have to make sure the cotter pin is preperly placed. If not I keep hearing tha loose castle nut rattling. Just another amateur changing the rear tire/tyre.

Mine reads in very loud letters M KGS and FOOT POUNDS. Hmmmm....

What would the anglo-saxons be without imperial measures? It is so nice to have traditions about measurement methods too (a little complicated for metric peoples).
A cultural curiosity, in some parts of Italy is in use but is now disappearing, the "biolca".
The biolca is an agricultural unit of measurement of surface not belonging to the international system, used in various areas of Emilia, Mantua, Pavia and other neighboring areas. It corresponds to the surface of land that was estimated to be able to plow in a day's work with a plow pulled by two oxen.

My sister in EU absolutely refuses to use the English system of measurement. I have to convert for her convinience everytime. It is kind of annoying.
