Torque specs for pressure plate?

I am installing a new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing in a Chevy 350, 260 hp, street driven engine connected to a Muncie 4 speed transmission. Zoom, stock type clutch and pressure plate.

I can not find torque specs in my service manual for the pressure plate.

Does anyone know what it is?

I have never torqued them. I get them good and tight with a 3/8 drive ratchet. They are 3/8 bolts so I would think 35-40ftlbs would be sufficient.
