I will go to garage and look in ford manual also maybe owners manual. I am thinking around 90 foot lbs. of torque but will see and get back.

The 73 Mustang Assembly Manual says for the aluminum wheel lug nuts...

80-105 lb. ft. applied torque
75-110 lb. ft. audit torque (not sure what they mean by "audit torque")

And for the center cap screws.... 20-30 lb. in.

I'd guess that the audit torque is the checking torque after you've applied the necessary torque to all 5 lugs on the wheel, and go back and check the torque before going on to the next wheel.

Let me check your shorts!

The Ford shop manual says 75 to 115 Foot Pounds of torque for Wheels. I checked while in the garage.
