Got a torque wrench for xmas and I'm eager to play with it.

What do I torque my valve cover bolts to?

Also, What do I torque the spark plugs to?

Thanks. BTW its a stock 63 289.
Thanks again, Steve.

hope you got a new set of heads for christams too because I really don't think you would need a 18 inch torque wrench on either the valve covers or spark plugs

Who said it was an 18"?

Anyway, I found out that the plugs are torqued 15 to 20 pounds, but still wondering about the valve cover bolts. Reason is because I'm always afraid of overtightening them and end up not tightening them enough. So I get leaks sometimes.
