    Can't find the specs on what the torque should be. I thought most GM small blocks were 30 to 35lbs, so I figured I would do 2 sequences.......15lbs and then 30lbs, but not sure if it is 30 or 35 for the final torque.

    Initially torque to 20 ft lb then to 35 working your way from the center out in a circular pattern. This is with thread sealant on the bolt threads, which is what you should be using.

    Thanks B&B. Yea I bought thread sealant when I bought the FelPro gaskets and the gasket remover stuff.
