HEAD BOLT TIGHTENING

In the end I had to have my head rebuilt. I am looking in the HAYES manual and seeing a torque spec of:

18 ft/lb
90deg
90deg
90deg

I have made it to step 2 and these bolts are really tight. Is there a ft/lb conversion to what the bolts should end up on. I an genuinely concerned of stripping out a bolt.

Do you
have the same problem?

No, they are torque to yield bolts that can only be used one time. Make sure you are using new bolts only, if you are using old ones, they will break.
