head gaskets the cylinder head bolts for a 2003 subaru forester 2.5l

 

I need the install pattern and the torque specs please

Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 6 years ago.

OK, on all machined parts like the head, manifolds and enything like that, the pattern is always predicatble. Start with the center most bolts and work in a circular or X pattern as you move to the outer bolts.
