These torque specs seem awful high, I have several different FSM’s that I have downloaded over the years, am I reading this wrong?
It would appear that the foot pound numbers are bonkers.
It’s page SR-47 of whichever manual this is.
1,800 ft lbs on the pitman arm nut?

Something is certainly wrong with the #'s. 177kg-cm is approximately 17NM or 12.8 ft lbs according to a quick google conversion....

I personally would get that thing as tight as I could by hand using a normal length wrench and call it day.

Their legend is incorrect.

It should read N-m (kgf-cm, lb-ft)

This really is a similar reason the wheel bearing torque is wrong in the FSM in the USA.
