351 Top end reinstall questions
#1
What are the torque specs for head bolts?

What do you torque the rocker arms down to?

Do you apply etc to both sides of the Turkey pan and does it go down first then the gaskets then the intake?

Thanks!

All torque specs and sequences are in the shop manual.

Paper gaskets first, then end rail seals, then turkey pan. Instructions should be in the box.

[b]Looks like head bolts are 105ft lbs\  do three steps though, 85, 95, then 105 ft lbs[/b]
[b]Rocker Arms  18 to 25[/b]

I use a copper gasket maker for the valley pan.  No gaskets assist the turkey pan except on the front and rear edges of the block.  I believe they go below the pan,Google Images confirms that.
