Uses Torque to yield bolts (always replace them) Head torque, lightly oil all bolts. There is 6 steps to tightening the head bolts and correct tightening procedure needs to be followed. Tighten to all bolts to 37ft/lb then all to 45 ft/lb, then all to 52 ft/lb then all to 59 ft/lb. Loosen the bolts 2 to 3 turns, tighten all bolts to 48 to 55 ft/lbs Next tighten an additional 90 to 110 degrees of rotation
Rocker torque 19 to 25 ft/lb.
The instructions need to be followed exactly so it is best to get a workshop manual specific to that engine.
