You need a copy of the FSM. It'll have the torque specs. JP and SiFi can hook you up or have links in their signatures.

Factory Service Manual... so much better than Chiltons or Haynes.

The Chilton's is decent too. The Haynes for the D21 sucks. The FSM is where it's at. JP and SiFi can hook you up with a free PDF.

It doesn't need to be that tight. The manual for other D21 model years are 16ft/lbs to 22ft/lbs.
