ON MODELS WITH OLD STYLE PLASTIC HEAD GASKETS
Tighten cylinder head in four stage in sequence as shown: Tighten initially using a torque wrench: Stage I 40 Nm (30 ft. Lbs.)
Stage II 60 Nm (44 ft. Lbs.)
Turn further using a hand wrench: Stage III 1/4 turn (90 )
Stage IV 1/4 turn (90 )
NOTE: In the following step DO NOT loosen head bolts.
After final assembly run engine until completely warm (oil temperature at least 50 C (122 F), then tighten head bolts in sequence an additional 1/4 turn (90 ).
For either gasket, it is NOT necessary to re-torque cylinder head bolts after the first 1,000 km (600 ml).
