Leaking Oil Plug/Orings on Head

Question? I am replacing a few Oil Plug O-rings from the top of the heads (4 each side) and question if any Loctite sealer is necessary on these nuts. Also what do I torque them down to?

That is a tough one to find.. usually i can find torque specs pretty fast.

I wouldn't use loctite, I see no need for it. Plus i don't want that stuff to crust up and travel through the system. Especially if you ever remove those plugs. if you loctited them the crude can fall in the next time you pull them out. And if you don't clean those oily threads throughly, the loctite don't really work well anyways.. I just don't see the need for it.. I would just put a little oil on the orings and tighten them up. IF i was going to grab the torque wrench i would use 20ftlbs.
