See below

(2) All bolts except No. 9 (8-mm bolt) must be tightened to specification in sequence. See Fig. 6. No. 9 bolt should be tightened to 25 ft. Lbs. (34 N.M) after all other bolts are tightened to specification

Torque sequences are always the same. Start in the middle and work toward the ends while alternating sides.

Thank you rasmataz I'm going to take the heads to a machine shop to have them checked for warping and look for cracks. Anything else should I be looking for? I've never done this before but I'm not scared.
