Hi, I guess this is an E36. Head bolts should be renewed if heads been off, as they are stretch bolts. Tightened in 3 stages, 1st 30-35 nm 2nd + 90 degrees, 3rd + 90 degrees. Hope that helps

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

Head bolts torque settings


According to my haynes manual for G-S reg, 1989-1998 it goes as follows,
Stage 1:- Tighten all bolts by hand until bolt heads just contact cyl. head.
Stage 2:-Tighten all bolts to 40Nm or 30lb ft.
Stage 3:-Angle tighten all bolts a further 60 degrees.
Stage 4:-Angle tighten all bolts again a further 60 degrees.
Stage 5:- M12 x 140mm bolts ONLY angle tighten a further 20 degrees.
Hope this helps everyone, sorry it seems longwinded but that is how it's written in the manual.
