When torqued with ARP's moly assembly lube, the recommended torque values are a bunch lower than Ford specs. For my aluminum headed 333, should I torque the heads to 70 & 80 ft/lbs (short & long bolts) or ??? How about the mains (2-bolt Mexican block)???

75 and 80 on the heads with oil, and 75 on the mains Todd.

Todd, use some sort of sealer on the head bolts. I like gray anti seize personally, but Kopper Koat, silicone, or Permatex etc. will work.
Use only oil on the main bolts.
