torque specification for camshaft carrier bolt

Hi, I’m new to this forum so please see with me. I own a 2007 Honda Civic Type R GT Vtec and I thought it would be a good idea to respray the rocker cover/engine cover in red. I did it and it came out well, but when I was fitting it back I tightened the nut on one of the bolts that connects the engine cover through down to the camshaft bracket and into the head and the top of the bolt snapped off 😩😩...I had to order a new one which should be here soon. I am hoping someone can tell me the torque spec for the camshaft bracket/carrier bolt so that I can tighten it to the same torque as the other? Or even direct me to somewhere I can obtain the information. Any help would be appreciated. I could put a pic to show what I’m talking about but don’t know how to do that as yet lol. Jay

@Monkafari I did the same......take at look at the front right
I forget but if it's called an M.8. cam holder bolt, the torque spec is 22nm. The rocker cover nuts are torqued to 12 nm.
