Torque specs for W5 head bolts

I need to re-torque my W5 head bolts. I couldn't find anything in the Star repair manual or on this site. Anyone got the specs?

Vince,

Not sure their are any torque specs for any of our old cars (other than tighten by hand/wrench until tight)

If you can't find anything specific here is a torque chart that I use...For our old soft 7/16" studs I would recommend using the "grade #2 column" which is 30 to 35 lbs max.
