I received this from BT quite a few years ago and saved it for reference:

All the listed torque settings for the SP 250 are as follows:-
Cylinder head where studs fitted with nuts - 40/45 lbs. ft.
or where Bolts are fitted – 50/55 lbs. ft.
Connecting rod nuts – 28/30 lbs. ft.
Main bearing nuts – 25/30 lbs. ft.
Oil Sump screws – 10/13 lbs. ft.
Flywheel bolts – 43/48 lbs. ft.
Clutch to flywheel bolts – 14/16 lbs. ft.
Pinion bearing nut – 95/105 lbs. ft.
Differential bearing nuts on caps – 35/40 lbs. ft.
Crown wheel bolts – 50/60 lbs. ft.
Road wheel nuts – 60/65 lbs. ft.

Hope it helps, Bruce
