Here is the first 4 pages of the technical data from a 1961 Buick Special Factory Workshop Manual. It includes the bolt specs (size / torque) for all the fasteners on the 215. Hopefully, this will be of use to someone who hasn't already purchased the manual. If I get a chance I will post all of the pages from the engine section. They were a lot of help to me. Be patient, the files are around 150k, but they were legible when printed on a laser printer.
