Question 400ex engine re-assembly

I ended up having to pull the head off my 400ex and was wondering what the torque specs are for the head bolts, and what order do you torque them in. I don't want to buy the clymers if I don't have to and I have built quite a few different motors. Thanks!

Head bolts torque at 33 ft-lbs. and are tightened in a crisscross pattern in 2 or 3 steps.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You're welcome. Yeah, I got the info from the service manual, so it should be accurate.

When you do torque them set your wrench to half the total value and work your way to the max torque, you will get a more even seal.

Awesome good info thanks! I ordered a namura topend gasket kit so its gunna have a new head gasket. do you have to put anything on the head gasket? It looks like there was some sort of sealer on it when I pulled it off. And i am certain I'm the first one pulling this motor apart so it wasn't something someone did.

No, you don't need to put anything on the head gasket.
