1.9L engines..

Tighten the cylinder head bolts in sequence (refer to the illustration) to 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm).

I need to know the torque specifications for the cylinder head bolts, manifold bolts, and intake bolts for a 1996 Ford Escort LX with a 2.0 split port engine. I have looked online on other sites and can't find the information and what I can find is all different numbers.
