So I have just replaced a broken valve spring. Now I'm replacing what the Haynes Manual calls the "rocker arm shaft bolts", but Haynes doesn't have a torque specification for "rocker arm shaft bolts". It has a listing for "Rocker arm bolts" @ 16lbs and also a listing for "Rocker Arm Lifter Rail Bolts" @ 106 in-lbs.
Now, I think the latter is the correct listing, but I'd like to make sure!

Being as the terminology is not the same, I'm not sure which specification is correct. Can someone be so kind as to clarify from their own specifications?

I might be able to get this buttoned up tonight. Thanks ahead of time for your help!
