Torque specs for Cleveland engines....

Howdy folks, will be picking up the complete bottom end of my 302 tomorrow ready to be assembled. Anyone know where I can get a list of the torque specs for every bolt on a Clevo engine? Thanks!

Good news too, I've come into some money so the engine will be back together alot sooner than expected. Tomorrow I'm picking up a HEI distributor, some closed chamber heads, and camshaft and lifters and after that it's just all the little bits and peices like vacuum hose, oil + filter, PCV valve, etc. Engine will hopefully be going back in next weekend Can't wait!

Put some of that extra cash into a factory workshop manual, everything you need will be there. I have 2 copies, one for the garage which I don't worry about grease, etc and one for the house !!!

Haha I actually took a factory manual out from the library but had to return it a while ago, maybe I should get off my ass and get it out again!

Just be carefull as to whether they are specs for oil or moly lube.
Use a reputable person or book for settings, cause asking on forums, you will get big differences. Its less complicated getting torque settings using 30 weight oil as the lube.
