The rear brake calipers are held with two 19 mm bolts. What is the torque requirement for reassembly. I have heard 85 lb-ft. I have also read 32 lb-feet. Does anyone know the number?

Those are pretty big bolts and the general rule is the bigger the bolt the more the torque required ...so I would say at least 85 ft.lbs sounds about right.

Rear shows 76...front is 136...not sure why there is a difference
The slide pin bolt is also way higher on the front than rear. I commented about this difference in the torque list thread because I followed the recommended 32ft lb and sheared my bolt right off. When I looked up normal torque values for that size bolt the rear one was the correct value (18ft-lbs). So, not sure why the front brake torque values are so much higher than the rear, but I would follow the rear torque values.

In my 50 yrs wrenching have never used a torque wrench on calipers, you just have to feel it.
