Replacing my lifters, just after the torque setting for the cradle that holds the rockers down,
I think it's 22NM, is this correct?

Ford specify 25nm.. But there have been cases where they have stripped out when done up to 25nm..

I usually only do them to 18nm as I have also had some strip out at 25nm, usually happens on heads that have had multiple cam changes..lol

Yeah, I do them to 20nm....25 seems a little like it wants to pull the threads out of the head.
