4.0 New Head Bolt Degree Wheel.

I know theres a specific pattern and torque sequence for installing a head on the 4.0l engine block. But, I'm using new head bolts, and it's common to use a degree gauge to stretch the bolt past required torque.

I guess my question is, what are the degrees for the bolts?
Thanks for your input!

Just torque them to spec and be done with it.

Yeah I've done a lot of reading on it and have found apparently the 4.0 head bolts are a 'variant' of the Torque-to-yield (TTY) type bolts and can be reused once. I wasn't sure if that means torque specs are good enough, or a degree wheel needs to be used as well

But I have found absolutely nothing about degrees, which leads me to believe that you^ are right, and I should just use spec torque.

Agreed! Torque them in their proper sequence is most important.

Don't forget:



(4) Coat the threads of stud bolt No.11 with Loctite
592 sealant, or equivalent.
(5) Tighten the engine cylinder head bolts in
sequence according to the following procedure (Fig.
56).
CAUTION: During the final tightening sequence,
bolt No.11 will be tightened to a lower torque than
the rest of the bolts. DO NOT overtighten bolt
No.11.
