Question about Cars & Trucks
I have tried to torque the main bearings to 50Nm but the bolt broke at +- 45Nm, could being 0.5 over size be the cause.

I know that it's a jag, and I know you are trying to be perfect, but in over thirty years, I've never seen a tech put a torque wrench on a caliper bolt. If you really want to I'd use about 35-40 foot pounds. (I go by bolt diameter) You don't have to slam them down but you don't want them to back out either. A bit over 35 is reasonable and should not damage anything and will keep them secure!
I have no idea what nm conversion is..
