I have like 3 ft/lb wrenches, but no in/lbs and i need to adjust my transmission clutches in the jeep...

its apparently very precise (tighten to xyz then back off 2 and 5/8 turns.. what the fuck is 5/8 of a turn lol.) so i don't want to just round to the nearest ft. lb (which would be 8, and thus inaccurate at the low end of the scale)

^I'd break the 360 degree full rotation into 8ths, so 45 degrees. I'd mark original position of the driver and mark out (using almost any type of angular gauge being 45 or 90 degrees... be creative) the end position of the driver, or use that to gauge how much farther to go.

I have snap on torque wrenches at my work, both measurements I believe they have. 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 and an (unknown brand) 1".
The 1" does up to 750 ft pounds of torque :freak: :lol: :lol:
