I found similar torque specs on the i-net too.... this one doesn't have flyweel to crankshaft torque specs - which I am looking for. For some reason my Chrysler LM318 service manual doesn't give this number either?!?!? I DID find a couple of sources like the one you provided that DO show a torque value .. but THOSE two sources didn't have the same frigging values. I was looking for a tie breaker... and am still looking.

the Post The Dave made has the correct toque value for the flywheel (55ft lbs.)
It's the 5th one from the botom (Flexplate/flywheel).... this is the toque value for either a flexplate (automotive app) or a flywheel. I looked in my Mopar manual and it says the same thing.... (flexplate/flywheel 55ft lbs)
This is the right numbers...
