Default Wood prop torque values and torque intervals

I'm having a hard time finding reliable torque values for my Sterba Wood Prop on my 6A. The previous owner re-torqued the prop bolts last year before I purshased the plane. He torqued them at 24ft/lbs which seams about right to me... but I found a lot of info on torque values for other type of props which makes me doubt...

Does 24ft/lbs looks right to you?

I have a 0-360 btw.

Also, is there a manual where I could find all the torque values for a 6A ?

The torque value for the prop is determined by the prop maufactuer, so it would be best to call them and ask. As for the airframe bolts (not including engine bolts) the AN-Bolt torque spec in the AC43-13 or any of the "mechanics handbooks" will apply. For the engine bolts (other than prop & prop extension) you need to look at the Lycoming engine maintenace/overhaul manual.
