hi i have a ford focus 1.8 petrol on a 57 plate just wondering does anyone know or where i can find the torque requirements for the head bolts thanks
If you can give me until tomorow I will look these out for you.
ian dean
sure can thanks for the help

Hi Ian, I totally forgot about this


Ok, so what i have in front of me doesnt state the order but its usually from the inside working out


stage 1 - 5Nm

stage 2 - 15Nm

stage 3 - 45Nm

stage 4 - angle tighten a further 90 degrees

stage 5 - angle tighten a further 90 degrees


You will also need new bolts (the old ones will be stretched)

thank you i have new bolts to go in. Im going to attempt to change the piston rings tomorow then i can put the head back on
ian dean
hi sorry about all the questions i was just wondering is it possible to remove the crankshaft and drop the pistobs out the bottom of the block or could i just undo thr pistons from the shaft and take them out through the top many thanks
The pistons should be removed/fitted from the top. So I wouldn't remove the crankshaft
