What is the proper amount of torque to use when tightening the motor mount bolts? And should I use Loctite on the threads or not?

The bolt has a hexagon head with a flange. The head takes a 14 mm socket.

I found this thread when I did a search in the maintenance section of this forum, but I don't understand it well enough to find an answer for this specific bolt. :mecry:

I found this info for the Toyota RAV in a google search but I don't know if it would be the same torque req'd for the FJ:

5/16 " grade 5 = 20ft/lbs
3/8" grade 5 = 35 ft/lbs
7/16" grade 5 = 56 ft/lbs
1/2" grade 5 = 85 ft/lbs
8mm = 22 ft/lbs
10mm = 42 ft/lbs
12mm = 70 ft/lbs
14mm = 95 ft/lbs
