Head gasket torque question


Recommended Posts

I have read through a whole bunch of the posts using the Site Search, but I have one (probably dumb) question.

After the second step angle torqueing (33º +/- 3º) you then bring the engine up to operating temp - after adjusting valves.

But I cannot find whether the final 25º +/- 5º tightening is done with the engine still warm, or do you wait for it to cool back down - probably 3+ hours.

Thanks for baby-sitting my ignorance.
