Torque setting on Cam Covers and Cam Bearings Caps...

I am reassembling the cam cover on a 308 QV, but in going throught the workshop manual, I am confused as to which setting to use for the cover and the cam bearing caps. The manual (english translation) suggests 0.9 Kgm for the "cam covers" but doesn't say anything about the cam bearings caps. Conversely, the french translation of that item - is for "Cam Bearing Caps"... and no mention of valve cover. Anyone can clarify this for me??

Fasteners this small in size do not require a critical torque measurement. A nice, moderate snug of the ratchet/wrench is sufficient. For assurance, use all new lock-washers for the cam bearing caps and the valve cover acorn nuts are actually Nylocks and should be new as well (since those are more difficult to find, conventional acorns can be used with lock-washers).
