In cases like that, you go by the bolt grade and thread pitch.
But I'm w/Ap on this- I've NEVER torqued the motor mount or clamshell to the block. And I've never stripped a hole or bolt, or had one loosen up on me either.
Ever tried to get a torque wrench on ALL the intake bolts on a Gen I SBC- w/o a crows foot, etc.?
