Need some Help!
I got a 1993 Taurus 3.8, What method do I use for torqueing the head bolts, Haynes as one method, Victor
Reinz booklet has another and the Ford Article # 98-4-9 has a different. I bought Felpro gaskets and Bolts.
Haynes, 37,45,52,59 Loosen all bolts in sequence 2-3 turns
11-18 Ft lbs plus 85-105 ft lbs (long bolts)
11-18 ft lbs plus 85-105 ft lbs (short bolts)
Victor Reinz Booklet
37, 45, 52 ,59, Ft lbs Perform following 3 steps on each bolt before moving to next bolt in sequence
1. Loosen2-3 turns
2. 48-55 ft lbs
3. Turn 90-110 degrees proceed to next bolt in sequence.
Ford article# 98-4-9 is about the same as above but is using ford bolts and there head gasket.
I wish Felpro has a torque sequence for the parts, Please Help, Rob
