Hello,

Here is how to use a torque wrench.

https://youtu.be/juOClONIWeY

Tighten the cylinder head bolts in three stages in the sequence indicated.
Stage 1: 20 Nm
Stage 2: 40 Nm
Stage 3: 90 degrees.

Camshaft bolts

Stage 1: 10 Nm
Stage 2: 19 Nm

Here are some diagrams (Below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

If there is more than one sequence, then you start in the middle and work toward the ends while alternating sides, then begin the second sequence and proceed in the same order.
Yes, the bolts are "one time use" and have to be replaced because they are designed to stretch.
