Your best bet is to head to napa and get that Haynes service manual... THIS BOOK IS A SAVIOR and it is like a bible to the at home mechanic. It will tell you absolutely everything about your vehicle inside and out. It even tells you little secrets mechanics like me don't want you to know. They run anywhere from 15 to 20 dollars at the most and it will be worth every penny to you as long as you own that vehicle

ARP Head Studs (using ARP Moly with the kit) 80 ft/lb
ARP Head Studs (using 30-wt oil) 110 ft/lb
ARP Main Studs (using ARP Moly with the kit) 70ft/lbs

The best way to do this is to divide the torque by three and go clockwise 1/3 at a time. For example: 1/3 clockwise, then another 1/3 clockwise then the last 1/3 clockwise. When maxium torque is achieved, back off in clockwise pattern (crack) a hair then re-tighten to desired torque (clockwise)

Will re torqing the head bolts o na 86 toyota 4x4 with a 4y engine help temporarily with oil in the water ? Im also loosing water but cant see a leak

if the job was done properly , re-torquing the head bolts is not necessary
what is very necessary however is to clean out the stud holes and threads before refitting the head and applying thread lubricant to the stud threads
the problem is when there is oil or water left in the holes before fitting that muck creates a false torque reading
the setting is reached but the head is still loose so re-torquing the studs will sill cause that hydraulic lock situation and the head will still be loose
also all head studs are not always the same length so a stud will bottom out at tension but again the head will be loose
and lastly, head gaskets have a sealant applied that glues the head to the block on operating temperature and that will now be destroyed by the oil and water
all of this is explained in detail in the workshop mmanual

Free answer "93 Lexus head bolt torque

it means that after the initial torque setting of 25 ft/lbs you put the torque wrench away and use a socket and bar to move the head of the bolt the required number of degrees as per the angle gauge that you will fit over the head of the bolt
so select the first hard stud and torque to 25 ft/lbs
repeat this to all the other head studs in the pattern required to achieve even tightening of the head
put the torque wrench away and fit the angler meter (gauge) on the 1 st stud and tighten to 60 degrees as indicated on the gauge
repeat the process for all the head studs as per the tightening sequence
then start again and tightened again another 60 degrees and so on
modern engines use degrees to achieve the correct stretch of the bolts to get the prescribed crush on the gaskets
this is because engineers found that dry threads , dirty threads and dirty stud holes do not give repeatable tensions on all studs.

Qd32 keeps blowing head gasket in a short distance as put on changed head and checked block but is still doing the same thin

When you do a head job there is a problem with water getting into the head bolts holes in the block. Combined with gunk already in the hole when you insert the head studs and tension down all you are doing is causing a hydraulic in the hole under the stud and the correct pressure to seal the head gasket is not being achieved.. It is a requirement that when doing a head job the stud holes are cleaned out using a thread tap ( to remove rust and carbon build up) and the holes are blown out with compressed air to remove all water-oil and debris.. Most mechanics use a film of oil on the stud threads before installing them-- My preference is "never seize" as it allows the threads to move freely under tension and stops binding of the threads. Tension the head studs in the correct order of rotation to settle the head gasket in place starting at 20 ft/lbs and do each rotation in increased increments of 10 ft/lbs until the correct head tension is reached . Before fitting the head check the protrusion of each cylinder liner above the block to ensure that they are all within tolerance as if one is lower than the rest it will not allow proper seating of the head

2000 Dodge Caravan....broken wheel studs...

Yeah , it's a fairly simple repair, All the wheel studs must be replaced and lug nuts also.Closely examine the wheel or get competent tyre replacement company to double check for damage ! Remove the brake disc caliper and brake disc itself (usually 2 cross head screws) , tap off (gently) it may be stuck thru corrosion / rust etc , Broken studs can be knocked out(towards drive shaft ) of the hub assy with a suitable drift and hammer (splined into hub) . The studs are a servicable replacement part. Check all other wheel nuts as this is usually a result from poor fixing or wheel replacement recently .. Good luck
