This bulletin is a clarification of the revised cylinder head bolt torque and tightening sequence bulletin.

Please note that 95° is just a little more than a 1/4 turn, not 1/2 turn, orfrom 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock on the dial. Do not tighten beyond thisspecification, otherwise the bolts will be overstressed and the gasketsmay suffer damage.
