Hi Doug,
I'm sorry but I don't have the specs... I know this may sound silly but I rarely use torque specifications... If it's critical I torque to bolt stretch otherwise I just torque to what feels good... If you want to use specs here a link to specs for standard bolt sizes..

I think the rods are around 3/8-7/16 size... so something between 35-45 ft lbs...
Notice there's quite a difference between a dry and oiled spec.... This is why I don't have much faith in torque specifications...

I was afraid of that lol.

I know how tight it was taking it all apart ( in Canada we say " Gooned " for tight as possible by luck without stripping ).

I guess I'll wing it....
