Sutherland's Handbook - torque specs (3rd or 4th ed)?

Does Sutherland's 3rd or 4th edition of the manual include recommended torque specs for Campagnolo components (crank bolts, chainring bolts, etc.)? Thinking about nabbing a copy as a reference, mostly for 70's through mid-80ís C&V builds and maintenance.

Thanks.

The original Campagnolo specs, or Barnett's would be better choice for that, I think. Sutherlands gives no torque specs that I am aware of. Barnett's does.

Can confirm Sutherlandís 5th edition does NOT list torque specs. Donít expect earlier editions do either.

Only mention of torque in Sutherland's 3rd is for Sturmey Archer brake arms.

Thanks, everyone, for your speedy and helpful replies. I've been going with some of the recommendations in Zinn's book and the Park Tools torque chart, but they're not that specific to the old Campy bits. I'll check out Barnett's, thanks for the tip @jiangshi. (I haven't seen a copy of the original docs that came with bits such as the crankset -- going to do some research into that. Thanks for that suggestion, too).

The image posted is from page 2-4, but on 17-13 (Appendix section) there's a list of recommended torque ranges for many components. Oddly, the "range" for crank bolts there is 350 in-lb, quite a bit higher! Park Tool's recommendation for Campagnolo cranks (what vintage??) is somewhere in between these. I generally go with those for most bike wrenching; not to say that I don't trust Sutherland's which I use all the time. Everybody working on bikes seriously should have a copy of Sutherland's.

Inhale, a smooth snug following by near instantaneous expulsion of air. A grunt is too tight.

Warren's 11th edition.( I use Sutherland's Fourth)
