Cylinder heat bolt torque:
Torque sequence --------- front | 7 3 1 5 | | 8 4 2 6 | --------- Step 1: Torque all bolts in sequence to 14 Ft/Lbs Step 2: Torque all bolts in sequence to 29 Ft/Lbs Step 3: Torque all bolts in sequence to 36 Ft/Lbs Step 4: in the sequence, loosen the cylinder head bolts three turns. Step 5: Tighten short bolt to 15 - 32 Ft/Lbs Step 6: Tighten long bolt to 30 - 36 Ft/Lbs Step 7: Tighten all bolt to 175- 185 degree note: Do not loosen all of the cylinder head bolts at one time. Each cylinder head bolt must be loosened and the final tightening prior on the next bolt in the sequence.
Main bearing torque:
Torque sequence: Step 1: torque bolts to 91 Ft/Lbs with the exception of the rear main bearing cap Step 2: torque rear main bearing cap bolts to 88 Ft/Lbs Step 3: torque brace bolts to 40 Ft/Lbs
Connecting rod torque:
Torque sequence Step 1: Torque to 29 Ft/Lbs Step 2: Turn an additional 90 degrees
