Does anybody know where to go to get the torque specs for a 52 JD A? Need to tighten down the connecting rods.

I do not have a manual for the late A's, but My service manual for 60 series says
"Tighten connecting rod bearing cap bolt nuts to 100 foot pounds torque tightness and install cotter pins.
If cotter pin holes do not align, tighten nuts to next castellation. Do Not Back Off Nuts."
I am guessing, that the connecting rod torque specks on the late A's and the 60s wouldn't differ very much,
if at all.
