Rocker pivot stud torque?

Not the adjustment part, the stud that screws into the aluminum. How tight do you torque them into the head?

Not listed in my FSM. Figure torque value based on the hardware (thread size/pitch)?

I was looking for a friend of Merlin's but he was able to beat me to the draw.
