Strange you should ask, I just did one side of my '66 yesterday, however I did not torque them when I put them back on, never have. just snugged them back up reasonably tight. Same as I did on the pan bolts, cork gasket seeped a little, so snugged them up a little more. Never thought about torqueing these bolts

Hi, I am going to try to fix some push rod tube oil leaks, changing the
valve cover as well. What are the torque values for valve covers? Where can
I generally find corvair torque values? I have steenkin' manuals but I
often don't read them... -- IV
Screwdriver snug... by hand! Value is in Manual...but I think is wrong.... basically you want 1 to 2 FT . LB. no more!
