50 lb/ft lubricated with oil. Check out the link I posted.

User Avatar the rocker studs are 7/16-14, same as the head bolts. should be torqued to about 65 ft.lbs.

on a '95 300 straight 6 with rocker arm bolts, not studs with nuts, the torque spec is between 17 and 23 foot lbs. if it has studs with nuts it is older and the specs are different so you will need to research that more.

There is no torque sequence just torque rocker arm studs to the proper torque

No you can get screw in studs mainly for high performance engines.
