    Tighten the bolts in sequence (Fig. 27) using the following steps and torque values:

    Tighten bolts 1 - 10: 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)

    Tighten bolts 1 - 10: 47 Nm (35 ft. lbs.)

    Tighten bolts 11 - 14: 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.)

    Tighten bolts 1 - 10: 90 degrees

    Tighten bolts 11 - 14: 30 Nm (22 ft. lbs.)

    requires new head bolts and proper tightening
