Thanks to Dominic Etzold of Symphony Cycles for sending me this data. In Dominic's own words:

I made an Excel Speadsheet of Torque figures for the small blocks if you'd like to use it for your site. The factory service manual specifies torque in kg/m figures (which none of my torque wrenches use) so I noted the factory specs and converted for ft/lbs for my benefit. Maybe I can spare others the effort that may find it useful.
