240 Clutch Pressure Plate Fastener Torque 200

I just finished removing a Clutch Pressure Plate on a 1990 240. I found someone had replaced the clutch at some point. As irksome as it was, the clutch was almost unworn with more than 3/4 of the friction material remaining, but the throwout bearing was totally queefed out (and the sole reason for the fun of separating the X-mission from the engine).

While I found 3 out of 6 pressure plate socket screws barely snugged up, I was lucky to get the other 3 off, stripping out the sockets on two of them. I guess that is one approach - tighten 3 like a gorilla, then you only have to hand tighten the rest.

This recent exercise provokes the question: What is the correct torque for those fasteners? Since it is not addressed in the Bentley, I'm thinking 30-35 ft-lbs.
