Thanks Karson, that was pretty good info. I have an additional request with the first question. Have you heard anything on the 302 ford head bolt torque that requires the longer head bolts to be torqued more on the heads then the shorter bolts? For example; Long bolts 80 and short bolts at 70, but maintain the sequence. I am asking questions since I am rebuilding a 302 and doing searches for all the info I can get as I work on this build. I have owned and worked heavily on 4 cylinders, but this is my first V8 and American car on that note. Anyway, I just found it strange for the bolts to be torqued at different settings from the intake side and exhaust side. Have a light to bring me on this?
I did exactly what the ARP bolt information explained and I appreciate the posting of that pdf file. Sorry for the long response delay. I have finally caught myself up to this point of my build and I am thankful for the answer that has been here for me. Thanks
