Hi and welcome to JA

 

You will need to renew the head bolts on this engine and follow a complex sequence as listed

Tighten 1 to 10 in order to 30Nm each bolt

Tighten 1 to 10 in order 80 +/- 4 degrees

Wait 3mins

Then slacken number 1 and 2, tighten to 25Nm then tighten 213+/- 7 degrees

Then slacken number 3 and 4, tighten to 25Nm then tighten 213+/- 7 degrees

Then slacken number 5 and 6, tighten to 25Nm then tighten 213+/- 7 degrees

Then slacken number 7 and 8, tighten to 25Nm then tighten 213+/- 7 degrees

Then slacken number 9 and 10, tighten to 25Nm then tighten 213+/- 7 degrees

 

Hope this helps. Please let me know
