SOURCE: head bolt tension setting

these specs straight from service info
single cam
25Nm + 70deg+ 70deg+ 30deg
twin cam
25Nm+70deg+70deg+ 30deg

alot of after market gasket sets are the 25Nm and 3 lots of 60deg and the extra 10deg bolts are meant to be replaced (use once only) alot of bolts tend to start stretching when doing last 10 deg use oil on threads and washers under bolts 25 and 3 lots of 60deg is correct and more commonly used.

I have a 2002 Ford ranger 2.5 td WL engine. I need to know what is meant regarding 1st stage, 2nd stage and 3rd stage cylinder head torque settings

as the head bolts are being torqued up there is a movement on the head gasket sort of like ironing the wrinkles out
BY pulling the head bolts down in the correct rotation ( sequence) this allows the "wrinkles" to be worked to the outside of the gasket and so the head is pulled down evenly on to the block with a flat gasket in between
The first stage is to get all the bolts to a predetermined tension so that the head is flat
the next stage starts to flex the head to carry out the "ironing" effect
this is repeated until the gasket is flat and the head is also flat on it
I my self use the tightening sequence for smaller ft/lb settings or degrees and almost twice the number of rotations as required because it makes for a better control of the stretching process of the bolts
You should be tightening it down to angles of degrees and not ft/lbs
The reason for this is that the head is clamped on by the stretch of the head studs and that stretch has to be even on all bolts
using a tension wrench means that the wrench will click off at a predetermined setting BUT that doesn't mean that the stretch is correct as the friction loading on the threads of the studs will vary according to thread cleanliness and finish, water or oil in the holes, wet or dry /rusty threads
BY using angles for tension, there is near a guarantee that each bolt is stretched the right amount regardless of the thread conditions

Is it easy to change head gaskit on a mk6 rs2000 and do u need any special tools to do this

On the scale of engine repairs - changing a head gasket is a precise job.

A torque wrench is required to put the right amount of tension to the bolts when refitting the head. Sometimes the cylinder head won't come of that easily - an engine hoist is a big help to get the head of evenly at every side.

Then removing the old gasket can take sometime since it can't be scraped of by force. When rebolting the head - the order in which bolts are fixed is very important - you need the bolt pattern from a service manual.

The rest of the job is rather straight forward - best to do inside.
