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.

Torque specs on pan aren't really necessary. First put all screws in place to get the pan properly located, (make sure you have put a decent dab of rtv sealant at the corners of the end seals before you put the pan up) Run each screw up to where it begins tightening (but no further) Start with either side center, then the opposite side, then work in an X pattern towards both ends, using enough force to make the bolts secure, but not so they are crushing the gasket. The larger bolts at the corners (where you put the sealant) can be tightened a bit more than the small ones. Let it sit about an hour, then just go over it again. Use a 1/4 drive short ratchet to avoid overtightening, after runing check for any seepage. You can turn those screws a bit tighter to take up for any pan warpage.
Been building engines for a long time and aside from the first time, I never used a torque wrench (specs are in inch pounds, usually 12-15...Ive found that unless you have a brand new pan that is absolutely straight and flat, using those specs often produces leaks.
