Do not recall.
It is very easy to strip out the threads.
Caution and just enough tension to hold the fitting snug.

I do them by feel, best guess = low inch pound range.

Use a regular combination wrench to tighten the bolt not a socket wrench. These combo wrenchs vary in length according to bolt size to give a good feel for the right amount of torque to apply.

The 617 engine manual does not specify a torque value for that fitting.

I always do it by feel......but is just a bit tighter than it needs to be so it won't rotate easily.
