Default Stock squirters - official torque spec?

I'm assembling a rebuilt engine, and the squirterizational thread doesn't have an official torque spec for the squirters. They were very tight (like 50ft-lbs to remove), and had no thread lock.

The greenbook for b230 rebuilds tp30871/1 doesn't list a torque spec for it. Anybody know what it is beyond a reasonable guess?

I was not able to find a spec either, I used the recommendation from Stealthfti in this old thread.

~18 lb/ft with red locktite.

I haven't finished the build.

Adding some data points to this.
I'm not sure what size squirters you are using, but VW engines use them in a few different sizes.
M6 threaded oil squirters 7 to 8 lb-ft or torque.
M10 thread ones are 20lb-ft
