if you do find some specs from the net you better double/triple check em cause many places that I have found have contradicting info best bet is to buy a complete engine rebuild manual such as chilton or haynes or steve smith

there are a few others that are better as far as how to stretch the grey areas but if I were you I would stick the pro books and stay away from the web

not knocking the toolbox here on this forum
the toolbox here has lotsa great info but you will have 100% of what ya need in 1 book that way

racing is way too cool gave up golf for it

SC1, How about this for an explaination of torqueing order?:
Basically, start in the center and "spiral" outward.

Do you use a regular machinist? I learned alot from a local machinist (that just happen to be come friends with). When I run into a problem or have a question I'll call him. Additionally I have another friend who is a mechanic that I call when I can not troubleshoot a problem.
