Hi all, I am re-installing the intake manifold on my 2.0L spica injected alfetta, is there a specific torque setting for the nuts that hold it on? In ft-lbs, thanks!

The intake manifold on my freshly rebuilt 1600 engine appears to have a small coolant leak between the gasket and the manifold. It only seems to leak a drop or two on the garage floor after the engine is first started. I am not sure exactly where the leak is coming from but I see coolant on top of the manifold next to the gasket. When there is a torque 'range', I usually aim for the center of the range. My old 1600 head appeared to have a similar leak and some erosion of the aluminum under the gasket. Not sure what is going on, will check/re-torque manifold nuts as after heat cycling other connections seem to have loosened up a bit.
