Torques?

OK,
I've done searches so I don't get yelled at for asking questions that have already been answered. These boards are packed with so much technical info that I think sometimes the easy questions don't get asked.
I have a sorry a## Chilton manual this is why I am asking here.
What are the torque values on the oil pan and carb (MC2100) for an 82' 258? I'd prefer not to distort anything and end up using copius quantities of RTV.

Thanks

I don't even think there is a torque spec for carb bolts,just snug it good and re-tighten after you run it.For the pan I would say the same,just use a criss cross pattern.If I had to guess,I would say about 20lbs. on the pan bolts.

My old Holley had torque specs so as not crack or warp the base plate. I assume the same would hold true for all carbs. I guess not.

The pan should be about 9ft/lbs.
Check ebay for a factory service manual. I should be getting mine any day now!
