Torque specs and procedure

So I'm finally getting around to installing a T5 into my 65 6 cylinder. I'm installing a new small OD "dog dish" fly-wheel and I'm looking for torque specs and a little advice on the procedure. I've checked the shop manual and cannot find the spec to use. Also, do I sneak up on it or just go for it all at once? Do I use a thread locker? Thread sealer? Which one? Does it change the torque spec? I know I have to alternate bolts around the circle.

As you can guess, this is the most involved project I've done to date and I really want to get it right.

Any help or advice is very much appreciated.

Gregg

Sneak up on it, star pattern, thread sealant on threads, grease under the head. Torque value is in the shop manual.

Permatex Aviation Form-A-Gasket works great for the thread sealer.

Thanks, I thought I read somewhere that those bolts needed a sealant. I can't find the torque spec in my shop manual, seems like Ford never expected them to be removed.

IF you have a factory manual then the spec is in there.
