Default Brake caliper torque spec needed

Hello
What are the torque specs for the front calipers? All 6 bolts:
2 bolts that attach caliper to wheel hub, take 21mm 13/16 wrench
4 bolts that screw caliper halves together, take hex key.

And, should I put a dab of loctite on some or all? (Didn't have any when taken apart.)

Thanks Art

'2 bolts that attach caliper to wheel hub, take 21mm 13/16 wrench' - 200 Nm or 148 ft-lb
the other bolts you are talking about I assume it's the 'brake caliper to pad carrier'(in the service manual)- that would be 25 Nm or 18 ft-lb

Thanks! My calipers come apart into two pieces by removing four hex head bolts. Lacking a service manual I couldn't connect my "two pieces" with "pad carrier". What I did is use the generic torque spec (google bolt torque spec) for that size bolt which is about 60 lb. They had a lot more than 20 lb on them at disassembly.

Edit: Torx scres not hex screws.
