The cylinder head is already in place. You don't need another body to install the head. It wasn't that heavy. I did it slowly but surely. No problem being encountered. My problem came during the tighthening of the bolts. First stage was to appyl 55 Nm on the bolts in correct sequence. The second stage was a 90 degree turn. I did followed these sequence. After the second stage I stopped and will ask for an opinion. Well on the second stage I already encountered the bolts being streched on steps 3,4 and 8. Is this okay? After a 45 degree turn I could feel the bolt being twisted/streched already. Do I have to continue to stage 3 and turn another 90 degree turn? Please advice.
