I just did a transmission swap on my 76 nova because something broke inside my old one and I had an extra laying around. How much torque should the bellhousing and torque converter bolts have?

transmission to engine mounting bolts(bellhousing): 35 ft. lbs.
convertor to flexplate bolts(torque convertor): 32 ft. lbs.
but with that said I normally just tighten them down fairly tight...I'm pretty sure using a torque wrench to bolt the tranny to the motor (if they are in the car at the time) will be an exercise in futility:D
