Install the bolts in sequence and tighten to 22 ft. lbs. The bolts must then be tightened again in sequence in the following order using a torque angle gauge. The short length bolts: (3, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, 16) 55 degrees. Medium length bolts: (14, 17) 65 degrees Long length bolts: (1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13) 75 degrees.

What are the torque specs on the head bolts on a 2005 gmc sierra 1500 series 5.3 liter engine


Consult your shop manual. If you don't have one, you can't be doing this job properly, as there are many torque values needed to do it right. Buy a cheap manual to be sure. My 2 cents.

Can't find the torque head bolt pattern for a 1996 gmc sierra 5.7 vortex


The "pattern" for ANY cylinder head is pretty much the same...start with the bolts in the center of the head and work your way out to both ends.
Torquing the cylinder head on your 5.7L Vortec engine to manufacturer specifications requires the use of a "torque angle" gauge, as well as a traditional torque meter.

The torque specifications are as follows:

> Step 1: All bolts: 22 Ft Lbs (30 Nm.)
> Step 2: Short bolts: Additional 55 degrees; Medium bolts: Additional 65 degrees; Long bolts: Additional 75 degrees

HOW TO FIX A BLOWN HEAD GASKIT?


Buy a gasket kit for the upper end. Remove the valve cover intake and exhaust manifolds. Remove the head bolts. Remove head and clean up block from old gasket material. Take the head to a machinist and make sure that it is not warped. If it is warped either replace the head with a new one or have it machined true. Install new gasket and get torque specs with new head bolts and follow torque sequence using the correct torque specs. Clean exhaust, intake and valve cover of old gaskets. install new gaskets and torque according to specifications.

I need the torque specs and sequence on a 1998 chevy 350 vortec


Vortecs are a little different that old school small blocks, grab a Haynes or Chiltons, the cross patterns and specs are simply diagramed. Vortec, as any really, start with 25# then 45# and then final torque which I believe is around 70-75# but to be sure verify with the manual. AutoZones, Murry's, Adavance auto all carry the books, Cheap insurance.
