flywheel bolts, torqued to?

Does anyone know the torque ft. lbs on the 2001forester flywheel manual?...on the crankshaft bolts and the bolts on the back of the flywheel that holds that thin plate to the flywheel.

before putting the flywheel back on, did you first be sure the oil separator plate was metal instead of plastic?

Wow, I'm surprised at how low the torque value is for the flywheel to crankshaft bolt.
