SOURCE: cylinder head ford zetec escort p reg

Stage 1 = 15Nm
Stage 2 = 40Nm
Stage 3 = Plus 90 degrees or quarter of a turn. Good tip is to mark all the bolts after initial torque setting with tip-ex , i.e. all to the front of the car. When you finish they should all point towards the timing belt.
This is also a good way to make sure you don't miss one or tighten one twice if you are distracted since it is not a torque setting. New bolts should be used by the way as they are stretch bolts. Timing of cams - remove cam cover and you will see a slot on the end of the cams. Opposite end from belt. You need to slip a piece of 5mm flat bar or a long 5mm allen key into then so that the bar rests on the face of the head. Engine should be a tdc.
cheers John

SOURCE: cly head torque settings

There are four bolts on top, and four bolts on bottom.
At the Top, starting from the Left side, the bolts are numbered ->
6, 2, 3, and 7.
At the Bottom, starting from the Left side, the bolts are numbered ->
5, 1, 4, and 8.

Sequence for tightening, of course, is to go from 1 through 8.
The best way to torque engine head bolts, is to tighten in a three stage tightening sequence. The bolts are finally tightened to 33 Foot Pounds,
and an additional turn of 90 degrees. Not trying to insult your
intelligence in any way, but I would like the additional 90 degree turn,
to be clear.
There are 360 degrees in a circle. If you go halfway, you have gone 180
degrees. If you go one-fourth the way, you have gone 90 degrees.
When you are getting ready to torque this final 90 degree turn, look to
make sure the end of your torque wrench has a clear path, so that you
will not be stopped somewhere along the way.

I advise torquing the head bolts to 15 lbs first. Then 25, then 33. Then go back one more time, for the additional 90 degree turn. Seems like a lot of hassle, but it's easy to warp this head. Remember, if you are not using some type of permatorque head gasket that has teflon, Like a Felpro Blue for example), after the engine has reached operating temperature Once, you have to go back, and retorque the head.

Hi iv got an escort 1.8 16v zeetec its r reg and iv had the head re conditioned i need 2 put the head bck on but i need to no the torqe setting can u help me thankyou.


hi yes here are the torque settings

stage 1 is 25nm
stage 2 is 45nm
stage 3 is turn 105 degrees

try leaving about 10 mins between each torque so it can settle also you have to tighten them in sequence and make sure you use new head bolts as these are the stretch type and if you are using the old ones there could be a chance of one snapping, just a little advice..hope this helped

Escort Mk2 1600 valve and torques settings what are they


cylinder bolt torque settings stage 1 15 ft pounds
stage 2 50 ft pounds
stage 3 85 ft pounds

valve clearences 0.15 - 0.20mm inlet
0.22 - 0.27mm exhaust
these are the figures i have been supplied with, you can also use

cylinder bolts stage 1 10 ft pounds
stage 2 50 ft pounds
stage 3 + 90deg.
with my exp, i would use the first guide as the degree method has a tendancy to snap head bolts, especially on older vehicles.

I'm replacing spark plugs on an Escort GT 1.8L 16V Fuel injected


you dont need a torque wrench....ALWAYS remember to put antisieze on the threads of the new plugs...gap them to specs...screw them dowm until the gasket (little ring by the threads) contacts the head, and then 1/2 to 1 full turn more...they dont need to be super tight....just slightly more than "snug"
