Center Bolt Valve Covers and Wire Seperators

I just picked up a set of the "Made for You" wire seperators that attach to the center bolt valve covers. They come with longer bolts to replace the stock ones.

I have never removed/replaced any of these before and was wondering if they need to be torqued to any certain spec or just snugged up? I was going to do one bolt at a time. Any tips or suggestions?

Thanks all

It's a '94 with TBI, if that makes any difference

Thanks Undertow,
Looks like I'll be calling a buddy with an in/lb torque wrench

Just do one bolt at a time. That's what I did and I have no problems.

gmcjim,
Did you torque them, or just snug them up?

Re: Center Bolt Valve Covers and Wire Seperators

Yeah, I think I'm just gonna do that. Since I'm not taking the valve cover off, and doing 1 at a time I think it should be OK.
