    I'm replacing the head gasket on a 2.7 Ci Taco. Using new head bolts. My manual doesn't list torque values ( turn bolt 90 degrees ) I prefer to tighten the bolts to a specific value. Can someone tell me the proper final specification?

    Thank You

    Make sure they are not torque to yield bolts. If they are make sure you replace them.
