Thanks again, but one of you said 70 and the other 80 can someone clear up which it is. I guess I could go in the middle at 75.

The torque on the main caps for the 89 302 is 60 to 70 lb. feet of torque.
The 351W is 95 to 105 lb. feet

This torque spec is with clean threads lubricated with engine oil.
