Question Spark Plug Torque Setting

Can someone tell me what the torque setting on a torque wrench should be when installing spark plugs.

The car is a 92 500E with M119 Engine.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Myarmar/Glen,

Thanks guys, feel better now. Getting prepared for my first plug install on the 500E and wanted to make sure everything was right.

LOL Glen I didn't realize you already had this information, should have figured that one.

Do yourself a favor and do the hardest ones first so you are the most relaxed and take your time, put it in straight, when the spark plug stops, you stop.

I always put just a little antisieze on them because I dont want to pull the threads out.
