Does anybody know how to convert Kgm torque to standard?

1 Kg-m = 7.23 lb-ft
Thank you Steve.
I'm trying to torque the rear axle nut. The book is listing it for 22kgm. That's kind of high!!!
That is a big torque, but it's a big fastener too. I don't have my 308GT4 WSM with me, but I can't recall anyone mentioning that the value given in Section M was wrong or needed a tweak.
No wonder I had such a hard time removing them. That's almost 160 foot pounds. The home build socket held up!!
Tommy don't ever forget, www.google.com is your friend! You can search all this stuff very easily using google. I do it all the time.
To be honest with you I did.
What really got me was the conversion. It just didn't look right. That's a very high torque nut.
Thank you though. I appreciate the help.
Just as an FYI, only 22k on the vehicle and all the rear bearings were grinding!!
