They should have bottle neck studs, which means you torque them down against the stud. Not sure on the spec. 45# maybe? Just be sure preload on the lifter isn't excessive.

I should have asked for more info. Stock rockers or rollers? I just assumed you were running a adjustable valve train, most do with c8 c9 or doves. Sorry!
