SOURCE: Transmission toque specs
The spec is 12 ft lbs of torque. Use a an even pattern when you tighten the bolts, this assures the gasket will not be damaged and create another leak.

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

15 to 20 PSI, using a 1/4" drive ratchet with the corrcet socket, you should get it right by just using your wrist to tighten the bolts, watch as you do this the gasket will slightly move. enough torque. seal your new gasket to your pan with a thin film of silicone sealer, let set-up till dry. Put a film of wheel bearing grease on the flange of the tranny and install the pan, the grease will not leak and if you need to remove the pan again it comes off easy.
