Use the following torques and tightening sequence for the new steel cylinder head gasket. Use new bolts when installing. Washers do not need to be replaced. Lubricate degreased components prior to installation.

Note: If there Is coolant and/or oil present in the bottom of the hole, proper torque will be achieved. However, the bolt head will not be bottomed. Blow clean the bolt holes placing rag around air nozzle to prevent splash back. Run a bottoming tap or thread chaser thru hole to clean threads, blow clean again. Lubricate underside of bolt heads, washers and threads lightly with engine oil before installation.
