Head bolt torque yield

90% of head bolts are stretched when installed. If you have the torque settings, you can confirm this by checking the specs. If it says example, 90lbs feet, plus a quarter turn, this confirms they are gonna stretch once torqued.
In any case, yes, change those head bolts at all costs. DO NOT RE-USE THEM. Make sure to torque and in the order as well. do not use a random pattern when torqueing.

Need to replace headgasket

If you do it yourself you must have a torque wrench. Undo the bolts on the head cover an the head in order like shown in the picture. Be careful when removing the old gasket - not to scratch the surface, otherwise there will be leaks. You'll have to replace the head cover gasket also and other gaskets if you have removed some equipment which sits on the gasket. When you are putting everything back tighten all the bolts SLIGHTLY and then use torque wrench and torque the bolts in the opposite order as you have removed them. You will find the torque specs on the net for your car.

No problem just want to know the torque specs for the valve cover bolts on a 1977 ford f250 4x4 pk. I'm changining out the gaskets and dose not she to torque specs in my manuel.

Rocker arm cover bolts are usually torqued between 6-9 ft/lbs, or 88-105 inch lbs. A good wrist tight using a 1/4" drive socket is how I do them and have had great success like that. Always put all bolts in finger tight, then start in the middle of cover top then go to the bottom middle across working your way outward in and up down criss cross pattern. Go around the bolts twice. Most common for people to overtighten them and then the cover will leak again. They do not need to be extremely tight, just a good snug / wrist tight......Mike

I blew the head gasket on my 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 L OHV. I am needing to know the torque specs so that I can have the gasket replaced tomorrow! A picture would be wonderful! Uncle is going to fix it but...

When torquing items today very little is done with just "numbers" in the process. Now you have to have an angle meter to complete the process so when you see me say to torque a specific number "plus so many degrees", this is how it's done. This is the meter:df03f54.gif Now, Here are the specs for installing the head:
Cylinder Head Bolt
  • First Pass
30 N·m
22 lb ft
  • Final Pass
155 degrees

Here is the sequence shown in picture form:
e8f4606.gif Also, you will need to discard the old bolts because they are "torque to yeild" bolts and CANNOT be reused. The reason: "Torque to yeild" bolts actually stretch during the torque process and once they've gone through this process they can't be reused because they no longer are able to "clamp" the head because they are too long. Hope this helps your repair project.
