What pressure do I use to torque the head bolts on the heads of my truck and what order do I use? I have bought new heads for this truck, but I need to know the torque pressure that I need to use on the bolts and what order do I tighten?

Do you
have the same problem?

63-73 (85-99)
1999-2000 (Ranger)
Step 1. 37 (50).
Step 2. Loosen one full turn.
Step 3. 22 (30).
Step 4. Additional 90 degrees.
Step 5. Additional 90 degrees.
First figure is ft lbs. Parenthesis is Nm new cylinder head bolts should be used.
Rocker arms must be fully seated in cylinder head and push rods must be seated in rocker arm sockets before final tightening. Camshaft may be in any position before final tightening. If all original components removed are reinstalled, valve clearance check is not required. If valves/seats were serviced, check and adjust valve clearance. See Valve clearance adjustment under adjustments.
Rocker arm bolt torque 20-28 ft lobs.
