92 chevy lumina: the torque specs for rocker arms and head bolts..V6

This answer was rated:

what are the torque specs for rocker arms and head bolts for a 92 chevy lumina car 3.1l V6
You need to coat the threads of the head bolts with a good sealer "like rtv black" and then the torque specs are 33 ft. lbs. the rocker nuts are 18 ft. lbs. DO you know what the sequence is? If not I can post the diagram for you.

yes I guess I'll need the sequence diagram please

Here you go, hope this helps. You also need to go an aditianl 90 degrees for the torque on the head bolts.graphic

Do not forget to turn the head bolts an additional 90 degrees after you have torqued all head bolts to 33 ft lbs.

Do not fell stupid, we all make mistakes when we are under the gun. Take your time and make sure to put the correct push rods in the correct holes. There are two different length push rods in this engine.
