Replacing camshaft-need bolt torques

I am replacing the cam finally on my 617.912 engine, I think he gave me the wrong cam though as I am seeing several thousandths less of lift on the new lobe heights (checked with micrometer prior to installing), could this be for a turbo engine? I'm taking old and new cams back tomorrow to verify them.

My primary reason for this post is that I need to know what the bolt torques are for the following so I can get this puppy back together correctly:

Cam tower mounting & head bolts
Small cam tower holddown nuts
Rocker rail stand mount bolts
Cam gear bolt
Oiling rail bolts

Any help would be appreciated, I will also have to look at my chain tensioner guide, I noticed it sitting off to one side on the chain, might be from me stuffing the rag in there though earlier to ensure the cam thrust washer stayed up top.

Thanks for the info everyone, it will be useful for sure. Unfortunately it looks now like the car will once again be sitting for a bit as it was indeed the wrong cam and he didnt have the right one on hand....I'll give him a few days to find one before I just get a refund. I thought $200 for a new in the box cam seemed like too good of a deal,lol. Just gives me a little more time to inspect other things.

Sorry have no experience swapping cams, but am curious because I thought the camshafts were indesctructible on these diesels. Do you have any pictures of your worn out cam?
