This is the factory torque adjustment procedure for a 3.0L, also i post you the bolts tightening sequence. i hope that this could help you

  1. Tighten in five steps (refer to illustration in Cylinder Head Installation for tightening sequence):
    • Tighten in sequence to 47-53 Nm (35-39 Lb-Ft)
    • Then back off all bolts 360 degrees
    • Tighten in sequence to 27-33 Nm (20-24 Lb-Ft)
    • Rotate 85-95 degrees
    • Rotate an additional 85-95 degrees.
  2. Tighten in two steps:
    • 20-30 Nm (15-22 Lb-Ft)
    • 26-32 Nm (20-23 Lb-Ft)
  3. Advance 3/4 to 1 turn after gasket contacts sealing surface or tighten to 13-15 Nm (10-11 Lb-Ft).
  4. Tighten in two steps:
    • 7-15 Nm (6-11 Lb-Ft)
    • 26-38 Nm (20-28 Lb-Ft)

I LOOKED UP THE TORQUE SETTING FOR THR HUB NUT FOR A 1999 FORD TAURUS.IT IS 184/250 ftlbs/NM. CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THE ''NM'' MEANS ? ALSO, WHAT IS THE TORQUE SETTING FOR THE 3 HUB BOLTS?


What "NM" means is Newton Meters; it's the metric measurement equal to the standard measurement. You interpret the torque settings like this 184 ft lbs OR 250 Newton Meters.

The three hub bolts should be tightened to, I believe, 80 ft lbs OR 110 Newton Meters
