With a crush washer, torquing them isn't so straight forward. I turned them in until they were tight, and then gave them another 1/4 of a turn exactly, which crushes the washer and provides a lock-nut type of effect. I didn't use a torque wrench (and I torque everything to spec.), it is more critical to get the right amount of crush to the washer.
