Hello everyone! I have misplaced my repair book for my 1986 300ZX non turbo. Does anyone know the recommended torque when putting the head bolts and rocker arm bolts back in? I'm working on a project I bought and am trying to re-trace the previous owners steps and put the car back together again....Thanks!!

acording to the Haynes manual the head bolts tighten in five stages
1. tighten to 22
2. tighten to 43
3. loosen all bolts
4.tighten to 22
5. tighten to 40 to 47
all are in LBS
thats answer to 1 now the answer to number two is
now I thought this to be strange so if I'm wrong someone please correct me but in the haynes book it says the rocker shaft tightens to 13 to 16 LBS. like I said if I'm wrong someone please correct me
Hopes this helps maybe z-bum could give you the link to his sight because you also need the order in which to tighten both head and rocker shaft bolts .
