Post Putting 4.0 SOHC motor back in need help

Okay guys, long story short I took my motor out of my truck about 8 months ago with the intention to put a rebuilt or used one in. Motor size is 4.0 V6 SOHC and the truck has 4x4 and is a 2001.

Since I took the motor out so long ago I forgot some important things. I have every thing needed to put it in from my old motor, but I need help with the following...

FYI the motor I'm getting has 70k miles and my truck has 167k.

1. The torque on the motor mounts
2. Which transmission bolts go where, I'm pretty sure some are different sizes and the torque for each bolt

Can somebody give me a link for all of the bolts/components torque?
If anybody has replaced their motor and has pictures please post them.
Are there things I must or should replace while putting the new motor in?
Any other info I need to know while putting it in throughout next week?
I do have some pictures from removing the motor, but that was 8 months ago so my memory is not so fresh.

Please no critism, I just want to know so I can do everything needed while putting it in to prevent me from having to fix or replace things after.

Default Re: Putting 4.0 SOHC motor back in need help

Haynes doesn't list this for soho but ey should be roughly same as ohv:
Mount insulator to frame nuts: 71 to 94 ft lbs
Mount insulator to bracket nuts: 65 to 85
Mount bracket to block: 45 to 60

As for tranny bolts. I don't worry too much about them. I remember 2 lengths (maybe three) and it's pretty intuitive about the lengths. Most of them are open back on the engine and can take any length. I think the top two are the only ones not open and require the bolt to not be too long. Just inspect the 8 motor holes and tranny holes and compare and contrast potential lengths.
