Im needing the torque for a DC head in lbs and also for the manifold. Also, is there a particular pattern in tightening down the head bolts? Thanks

You may already know these thing so please don't think I am talking down to you. These are lessons I learned the hard way. Torque the head to 75# as pictured. Here is an important point. These tractors are old and often the head studs are carboned up. Run a die over the threads befor you re-torque or you may hit the 75# and never get the head tight, Also it is a good idea to surface grind the head before re-installing.

Manifold 20#, make sure your surfaces are ground flat and smooth, and that ferrels are in place.
