TM says tighten evenly. I have never torqued a fuel pump; like moat vehicle
attachments, you go by experience and good shop practice.
How tight is tight?
Not sure that a torque can be assigned to such long headed screws anyway.
So, just tighten it to the same tightness as you do for the water pump screws. _________________ M38 23100 June 1951

The simple rule is whenever the manual fails to specify a torque figure you then determine the grade and size and thread pitch of the fastener, determine if it is being used in a shear or tension mode and apply the appropriate general chart torque. In the case of your bolts which are not an AN, MS, NAS Series it is safe to assume it is a grade 8 or better bolt. Parts book shows 5/16-18NC. Look up standard torque for this bolt size/pitch used in a tension application.
