2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: Head bolt torque

Just need the torque on the head bolts. -
Answer 1
there is a sequence that starts at 18 lbs. then to either 28 or 32 lbs. then there is an angle to turn the bolts when it is done. it is complicated and new bolts must be used or the heads will not seal and the bolts will break causing internal damage. i suggest you let a shop do this part at the least to insure you do it correctly.
