Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
1996 Z71 5.7 L.vortec
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
