Head Stud Install

Ok I've looked and looked do we have a thread about head stud torque specs and procedure?

I've found 95lb and 125lb which one? Also read do it three times does this mean tighten them loosen them three times? I will be doing one at a time.

Do it three times mean torque in stages I dunno the actual torque spec or pattern for dmax heads but if it was 100ft-lbs torque first to 60 then do 80 then 100 ft-lbs. Done a few sbc heads never a dmax tho. Im not sure what you ment by "I will be doing them one at a time" but you need to torque your heads evenly don't go full torque one at a time

I didn't think you were supposed to loosen them when doin ARP studs, because of their lube it wasn't necessary

if you torque those bastards to 125ftlbs then re torque them after a couple days of driving its hard to think that they will ever move. idk why they say you have to do all that bullshit

i would think it would be like 60 then 80 then 125 to make sure the head gets pulled down evenly and not smash one side down and maybe not seal correctly

INSTALLATION METHOD FOR HEAD STUD KITS
Part Number: 230-4201 Application: Chevy 6.6L Duramax Diesel
1. To ensure proper thread engagement and accurate torque readings, clean ALL threads in the block. Chase if necessary with ARP Thread Chaser, part number 912-0007 (M12 X 1.5).
2. Clean and inspect all hardware prior to installation. Look for obvious defects or shipping damages, plus proper fit, length and dimension.
3. If the cylinder head studs protrude into a water jacket, lubricate the block threads of the studs with ARP THREAD SEALER.
4. Screw studs into the block “HAND TIGHT ONLY”.
NOTE: LOCTITE MAY BE USED IF A PERMANENT MOUNTING OF THE STUDS IS PREFERRED. THE
FASTENERS, HOWEVER, MUST BE TORQUED PRIOR TO THE LOCTITE SETTING UP.
5. Install the cylinder head(s) and check for binding or misalignment. 6. Lubricate the stud threads, nuts and washers with ARP ULTRA-TORQUE FASTENER ASSEMBLY LUBRICANT.
Then install the washers and the nuts onto the studs and tighten them hand tight. ARP recommends using the ARP ULTRA-TORQUE FASTENER ASSEMBLY LUBRICANT that is provided with each kit as opposed to motor oil. This is due to higher friction on the studs as well as inconsistencies in the clamping force of the fasteners when motor oil or other low quality lubricants are used.
PRELOAD (TORQUE) RECOMMENDATIONS 7. Following the manufacturers recommended torque sequence tighten the nuts in three equal steps to 125 ft lbs
with ARP ULTRA-TORQUE FASTENER ASSEMBLY LUBRICANT.
Note: ARP Ultra-Torque Fastener Assembly Lubricant has been specifically designed to reduce tension preload scatter and eliminate the need to cycle high performance engine fasteners before final installation. ARP Ultra-Torque far surpasses all requirements offered by previous ARP lubricants in terms of fastener preload repeatability and performance lubricating properties. For more information on ARP Ultra-Torque visit our website at ARP-bolts.com | The Official Site of Automotive Racing Products, Inc. or call 1 800-826-3045.

Ok that is way too much information for me cainer70 ha ha. So thread bolts in hand tight then tighten them to 125lb three times. Then place washer and nuts and tighten those down three times to 125lbs? Can anyone explain in kids terms ha ha.

Just bear with me here but what's the logic behind tightening and loosening three times? I don't quite understand it

To allow for any natural stretch in the bolts.
