I'm getting there.

Unless it is requested, I am not going to list every torque spec for things such as engine rebuilds, diff rebuilds, etc. There are just way too many specs and they have to be exact. If someone is going to be rebuilding a diff, I sure hope they have access to a SM or other info.

I'd suggest that you include the full torque specs, just like in the Service Manual, even if you want to 'highlight' the foot-pounds value.
For example, the torque spec shown for the "Stabilizer bar mounting bracket" on page FSU-5 of the SM is "130 (13, 96)", which are the values in Newton-meters, Kilogram-meters, and Foot-pounds.
You could do something like "96 ft-lbs (130, 13)" and have a note at the top that numbers in parentheses are "(N-m, kg-m)".

For example:
REAR FINAL DRIVE ASSEMBLY, Breather 31 ft-lbs (3.5 0.36)
(that's the 'rear diff breather', page RFD-50)

Also, is it worth referencing the source of the torque value? Over time, some values might come from places other than the Service Manual. Values that do come from the SM could be done like this:
REAR FINAL DRIVE ASSEMBLY, Breather 31 ft-lbs (3.5 0.36) [SM RFD-50]

2006 Silver OR MT

All great ideas. I do have only so much time though.

I also think listing more than just the ft-lbs could translate into human error. When pulling the numbers I am getting them from the assembly drawings in the SM. You can not select the text there to do a cut and paste, so I am manaully entering the numbers into a spreadsheet and then updating this page. If I have to manually enter three numbers for every spec I am surely going to make a typing error. I think if someone needs more than the ft-lbs given they can dig up that info. Adding the source isn't a bad idea though and I'll make note of that when I am grabbing the data.

We all need to chip in to get Muzik a steak dinner or something for doing this. This is great.
