I’m getting ready to start up a completely rebuilt 1.9L Saturn engine. It is in a 95 Saturn SC2 DOHC. Torqued down the head as per the specs in the Haynes manual. Followed the sequence and used the CopperCoat on the gasket. When retorquing the head bolts after a couple hundred miles, do you just torque until there is some movement and you feel the head bolt seat? The reason I ask is at the last torque, the bolt moves another 1/4 turn so it’s obviously not a given spec. If I use the last highest setting from the sequence, it won’t move the bolt.
I’m assuming I just wrench it down till you feel so movement and call it a day. Will that work or is there some other technique?
