   There are 176 files in the Sears Roper manuals section. Have you tried that.   Don

I will be very surprised if there is a specs listing for any bolts beyond the engine and maybe the lug bolts.
Outside of that, I would go with a torque spec sheet for sae bolts like this:

Most manuals only list torque for a few essential nuts and bolts the rest of the fasteners are what is called standard torque. It's been a while but each size fastener has a prescribed torque if memory serves such as most small fasteners like 3/8 is 70 inch pounds. You can Google standard torque vaues for fasteners and unless your service manual gives a specific value you can usually call it good at the standard torque value.

Even most old Big Tractor manuals just say "tighten sufficiently" on many bolts.  I know now days every little bolt has a torque on the new vehicles we are building as an example. As noted, unless a manual gives a specific torque, don't think it is big issue. I don't use any less than grade 5 bolts tho, you can twist off those Grade 2 like a farm store might sell by the pound. In a Haynes car manual is a chart for basic torques on diff sizes of bolts. I have many of those from doing car repairs over the years.

I use the common sense torque spec.  Pull till it is tight enough to stay.  Pull, don't jerk it as that will stress the bolt and will break off down the road.
