The Haynes manual says for 96 - 98 to torque the head bolts to 22 ft lbs and than the short bolts 45 degrees, medium 55 and long 65 degrees

Those bolts are "Torque To Yield" bolts. You should be using new head bolts, tighten them to the spec listed and then rotate them the additional degrees of rotation that is specified. This assures that the bolts are tightened to a maximum clamp load.

To start out with, be sure to torque from the center out and there is a designated sequence to go in

They are taper roller bearings, when new something like 8 or 10 pound feet, used ones tigten until only a little play exists (if you have steel wheels leave the wheel on and it is easy to feel the play even if packed with fresh grease) If you overtighten they will growl and overheat and fail

I need the torque specs and sequence on a 1998 chevy 350 vortec


Vortecs are a little different that old school small blocks, grab a Haynes or Chiltons, the cross patterns and specs are simply diagramed. Vortec, as any really, start with 25# then 45# and then final torque which I believe is around 70-75# but to be sure verify with the manual. AutoZones, Murry's, Adavance auto all carry the books, Cheap insurance.
