I know I've seen it before in the FSM but for whatever reason I'm not spotting it. It's pretty low but can't recall. 1994 Anyone?
 
I looked, but did not see a torque number. Sorry

Thanks for looking - I didn't see it either -

Anyone?
 
Give it up, Mo; it ain't out there. ;)

Just go easy on 'em and let the gasket and bushings do the work; you definitely shouldn't be mashing the bushings/washers, or getting close to metal on metal at the gasket.

My 97 calls for 9 lbf. They are soft though, you might think about getting a couple of backups just in case. I snapped one or two and had to wait a couple of days for them to get to the dealership here.
