You are fine with the lock washers...

Question:  What do the 1/4 X 20 u-joint bolts on a '65 get torqued to?  I scoured the shop manual from cover to cover and couldn't find any mention of it.  When I looked in the '66 and '69 supplements it was in there for the bigger bolts.  Since I have no desire to twist off a grade 8 bolt already in the hole, I just torqued them to 7 ft. lbs. (84 in lbs.)  What does anyone else torque them to and why.  Thanks in advance.
