Anyone know 1985 Ford Trans Pan Bolts Torque?

Going to drain & filter change trans on 85 Ford box truck with c6 trans.
Plan on using RTV instead of gasket.
What torque is recommended on the pan bolts?

dont recomend rtv/silicone as gasket.
go to your vehicle,& dome other info.
they have an online shop manual
dont forget to straighten oil pan 'bolt holes' that are pulled up by the bolts

Newtofta is right... Don't use sealant, as it rots & breaks off with the trans fluid & can cause lots of problems, especially on an older trans as yours with centrifigal govenor.... Why not use a gasket??? It comes in the kit with the filter.... Roger
