The manual for my Duo-Therm Penguin roof top A/C units specifies a torque of 40-50 inch/pounds for those "hold down bolts".
I have checked mine every year for the last 15 years and often find they need to be re-torqued.

NOTE:
The correct torque for my A/C hold down bolts, (per my A/C manual), is 40-50 INCH/pounds.... (NOT FOOT/pounds).

(I use one of these:

Divide by 12 for inch pounds to foot pounds. However, that
big torque wrench you have will not be very accurate at
3.3 to 4.2 ft pounds. You will need an inch pound torque
wrench, and yes they do make them.
