There are no torque settings. The bolts are steel with a coarse Whitworth thread screwing into aluminium, so care is needed not to over tighten, although I’ve not come across a stripped one. For me it’s always done by feel, something you acquire after stripping threads in the past! No doubt someone on the forum will give you better advice.
