Zetec E Head bolt Torque settings


Recommended Posts

Hi All

Did a head gasket on my sons 1998 1.6 16v Zetec E recently and it has failed again. Looking at where it s blown it has been suggested that the head was not torque'd down enough. I did it by the Haines Book i.e. 25 NM, 45 NM and then 110 degrees (I believe these were the seetings used, don't have the book in front of me).

Anybody have a view on what the correct settings are?
