Any information is very helpful. My first time doing this and just wasn't sure if it required a specified torque on the bolts. Planning on doing this on Tuesday of this week; gathering all materials needed for this task.

there are no torque spec's listed on all data. torque tight enough to compress gasket

Torque tight ie. little more than snug...overtighten, and you'll ruin gasket, and have to start over.
