1995-1998 GM 5.0L & 5.7L            Cylinder Head & Intake Manifold

Cylinder Head    #1 use sealer on head bolts

     #2 in sequence torque all bolts to 22 ft-lbs

     #3 For the rest of this procedure you need a device to measure degrees.

          I would suggest marking each bolt immediately after final torque.
