Dr.D.
I have one of these you are welcome to borrow:

it runs from 20 to 150 ft lbs, so I don't know if it will go low enough for the inch pounds torque you need, but it's yours to use if you need it. :beer:

If you can get a 3/8" drive torque wrench you should be OK. 1 foot pound equals 12 inch pounds and 3/8" wrenchs usually only go up to 50 or so foot pounds so they are pretty accurate in the low inch pound range.

I've got several torque wrenches, one of which is the type pictured below; you are more than welcome to use it -- only problem is that I ain't near the "high dez" area. If you are in North San Diego, I'm your man.

I know this won't help you now, but keep your eye's open on ebay. The high end Proto's go cheap.

Do you use that type so you can continue adding torque without readjusting the knob (as opposed to the click type). That looks like a nice one there. I never liked the ones with the long needle.

If you can get a 3/8" drive torque wrench you should be OK. 1 foot pound equals 12 inch pounds and 3/8" wrenchs usually only go up to 50 or so foot pounds so they are pretty accurate in the low inch pound range.Yeah but most only go down to 10 ft lbs or so. Depends on how low you want to go. It's nice to be able to torque valve covers and oil pans without crushing the gasket.

Hijack over, good luck with your search. If you don't find one, it seems some tool rental places offer them. And here in GA, Autozone you can buy loaner tools (if they carry that type) and get a refund when you bring them back.
