Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 6 months ago.

The head bolts should not be retightened. they are torque to yeild head bolts.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
What I've heard is that it says 22 ftlbs then turn 90 degrees then loosen all then 22 again then 90 degrees again??
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Not able to see that last reply.
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 6 months ago.

That is correct, but only if you are using new head bolts. If you try to do that with old head bolts they can and will break.
