    I have one of Todd's pan spacers, I do not own a shop manual, can anyone tell me what the torque specs are for the oil pan bolts and the bolt that holds in the oil filter?

    Look in the downloads section. Should be the same for all the small blocks. If the torque value is low, (say under 10 Nm) you may be better off tightening by feel. Low torques values are difficult with a torque wrench.

    Looks like the pan bolts are 10 NM. I can't recall what the filter retaining bolt was and am having trouble finding the value, but I know it was too high. You should just do as John suggested and snug by hand with a short ratchet. Otherwise you're likely to cause yourself all kinds of headaches.

    Don't forget to use anti-seize. Steel bolts in aluminum. The different metals can corrode, preventing removal.
