    Hello All,

    I pull the head on my 2000 5.3 because of a broken exhaust bolt on the drivers side. Im ready to start reassembly but have a few questions. They are listed below. Also is it worth pulling the other head and installing a new gasket. The truck has 92,000 on it.

    Thanks all

    1. Head torque spec and sequence. I have new bolts coming.
    2. exhaust bolt torque spec. Would you use Grade 8 instead?
    3. rocker arm torque spec.
    4. Intake bolt torque spec.

    That looks like the Main bearing torque guide. Is that right?
    I need the Cylinder head torque sequence

    For God sakes people post something usefull.



    Tighten the M11 cylinder head bolts a first pass in sequence to 30 Nm (22 lb ft).
    Tighten the M11 cylinder head bolts a second pass in sequence to 90 degrees using J 36660-A .
    Tighten the M11 cylinder head bolts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) to 90 degrees and the M11 cylinder head bolts (9 and 10) to 50 degrees a final pass in sequence using J 36660-A .
    Tighten the M8 cylinder head bolts (11, 12, 13, 14, 15) to 30 Nm (22 lb ft). Begin with the center bolt (11) and alternating side-to-side, work outward tightening all of the bolts.
    Intake 89 inch pounds
    Rockers 22 ft pounds
    Exhaust 18 pounds, bolts are metric thread. At least put all new ones in.
