there is no repair manual published for the 1996 tercel, not from chilton, not from haynes.
the 1994 tercel and the 1996 corolla are both covered in haynes manuals, that's the closest we can get. both have some of the same systems, gotta pick and choose.
there is an expensive professional repair manual, published by toyota, i think, that's what mechanics buy for shops. it costs hundreds, and is not easy to buy.

The cylinder head bolt torque is a 2 step process.
First: Torque all of the bolts to 45 Nm (450 Kgf-cm or 33 ft lbs.)
Replace any head bolt that will not torque to the above specs.
Second: after all ten bolts are torqued to the above specs, the head bolts are then "Torqued to Distance"...
Starting at the center bolts, retorque all ten bolts an additional 90 degrees.
Hope this helps, the graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

4. REMOVE ENGINE BALANCER
(a) Uniformly loosen and remove the 6 bolts in several
passes, in the sequence shown.
(b) Remove the engine balancer and spacers
5. CHECK CONNECTING ROD THRUST CLEARANCE
Using a dial indicator, measure the thrust clearance
while moving the connecting rod back and forth.
Standard thrust clearance:
0.160 − 0.312 mm (0.0063 − 0.0123 in.)
Maximum thrust clearance:

If the thrust clearance is greater than maximum, re−
place the connecting rod assembly. If necessary, re−
place the crankshaft.
6. REMOVE CONNECTING ROD CAPS AND CHECK
(a) Check the matchmarks on the connecting rod and cap
to ensure correct reassembly.
(b) Remove the 2 connecting rod cap nuts.
(c) Using a plastic−faced hammer, lightly tap the con
necting rod bolts and lift off the connecting rod cap.
HINT: Keep the lower bearing inserted with the con
