Question 1969 Aluminum Intake bolt torque

I have not been able to locate the 1969 Z28 Aluminum Intake bolt torgue spec's. I located the spec's for a cast iron type-30ft pounds torque. Does anyone have the torque specs for the aluminum intake? Thanks for all answers ahead of time.

30 FT. LB. as well. No flat washers. Be sure to seal the threads that go thru.

Thumbs up Re: 1969 Aluminum Intake bolt torque

Like GaryL said - GM recommended 30FtLb no matter what the intake material was.
For use with Aluminum heads they did reduce the torque spec. to 20FtLb.
Edelbrock recommends 25FtLbs.
I find anywhere between 25~30FtLb works well with the newer gasket types.
