I use 70-75 for all the bolts with oil under the heads & sealant on the threads if a stock block
Was this block plate honed with the same gasket & do you know what torque was used when it was done?
This is the torque I would recommend

No you do not need to retorque MLS gaskets

Thanks Mike, I do not know about the torque plate but I did ask to have it on when boring out the cylinders, My cam card says 30 lash what do you recommend I lash it to for a new motor? Thanks...Mike
