20Nm then 40Nm then 90 degrees, 90 degrees and 90 degrees. I can post up the bolt sequence tomorrow.

Have you replaced the bolts? Just replaced my TS head gasket and the bolts were showing signs of stretching. I'd advise changing them.

They are stretch bolts, they are designed to stretch (once!!).

The angular tightening sequence is peculiar to stretch bolts.

Differing opinions on here if you read some of the posts .. I know my head had been off three times including this last event .. so having spoken to Phil at AlfaShop I decided it was best to go with new as I had no idea if they had been replaced before (somehow I doubt it and £30 wasn't a lot for piece of mind).


Anyway, bolt sequence attached as promised ...
