manual below 11A-18 &11A-19

Just a thought, I have changed timing chain before and when I put tensioner on it would throw off timing mark. I would offset the timing mark one tooth and when I would put the tensioner on the timing marks would line up.
Hope some of this helps, good luck

stop throwing parts at it first of all. second seek a pro's advice. its cheaper to pay a pro than go broke buying parts you didnt need. its that simple

I don't know the settings - they are often supplied with the gasket set these days.

Wanted to mention a couple of things...
Tightening sequence starts in the middle and works outwards - some manufacturers use a spiral pattern while others remain with diagonal opposites, though unless the head is quite wide with a large number of bolts the sequence makes little difference and I usually opt for the spiral but if the head (4 cylinder) is like that of the Perkins and many older engines with upwards of a dozen bolts the diagonal method is best.

If the head bolts are the stretch type (most modern engines are), the bolts are angular torqued by degrees rather than lb-ft. In this case some manufacturers specify further tightening immediately after the first thorough warmup and cooling cycle, cooling for 6 hours before tightening the final 30 degrees or whatever.
No further tightening is necessary or recommended.

If the original bolts aren't the stretch type a torque wrench will have been used for tightening and a later retorque is wise. The engine should be thoroughly cold and each bolt should be slackened and retightened in turn - important the bolt should be kept in motion until the torque wrench clicks.

Many newer radiators don't have drain plugs. Plus, you don't want to use the drain plug to drain your radiator because the plastic stem or rubber o-ring usually hardens with age and breaks off when you close the valve. Then you've got a real mess on your hands. Shops just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the system. It's faster and it eliminates the risk of breaking the drain
