head bolt torque?

Hey All,
Anybody have the headbolt torque figure for '96 16 valve 1.6?
I have torn down for head gasket leak, but can not find the correct headbolt torque.

Thanks,
John

Re: head bolt torque?

That site has it right, but if you can figure out the torque from their description, you are smarter than me (isn't saying much!). The sequence is correct for torquing. I think my manual said 46 - 50 ft/lbs. I went to 50 in three incriments. Make darn sure you have the gasket facing the right way (you need to be SURE that the little oil hole is in the front inline with the hp oil feed to the crank).

Re: head bolt torque?

Thanks All,
I need to bookmark that autozone site, cool even if flawed! It is amazing that I ended up stopping at 47.5 foot lbs. because that is what felt right from the standpoint of them not turning anymore.
Sidenote: My convertable has about 155K on it, all mine as I bought new, and leaking coolant. Couldn't find an external leak, heatercore leak nor excessive moisture in the exhaust, no coolant in the oil. Tore into it thinking the head gasket must be leaking and couldn't find a problem there. Maybe the adapter at the back of the head where the heater core hose attaches? No drips ever on pavement and it used a LOT of coolant. It was very clean inside the motor, (very regular oil changes) and very little cylnder bore wear. Very amazing.
Got any ideas?
JC

Re: head bolt torque?

Could be a leaky intake manifold gasket, cracked head, or ?? If it isn't leaking it, then it is burning it. What do the spark plugs look like?
