inch #'s on a foot #'s torque wrench question

I need to torque my head to 165 inch pounds, but my torque wrench says foot pounds only. Do I divide 12 into the 165 to get inch pounds on my foot pounds wrench? Bill

Yup. 12 inch lbs = 1 foot lb.

If your torque wrench is like mine, it doesn't go down to 13 3/4 ft lbs.
