ARP head stud torque specs/squence

Getting ready to replace head gaskets and need the torque specs and sequence. I will be using ARP head studs.

Depending on how the short block looks I might put new rings and bearings in there while I'm at it. If anybody has the torque specs for the mains and rod caps using ARP fasteners that would also be helpful. I tried doing a search but it's been a while since I've been on here. On my phone I found the new format difficult and not user-friendly. Thanks for any info.

ARP should have instructions that come in the box. Otherwise if you have the part number you can look them up on their site. And if all else fails, you can go to their site, select the engine family and type of fastener, and determine the instructions from there.

I have, but was having trouble finding the correct info. I had a ledger I was recording specs in when I first assembled the engine over 10 years ago, but I miss placed it somewhere.

I'm not sure what ARP head studs I'm running. I installed them over 10 years ago and have lost all the spec info I had. Thank you for letting me know that ARP has that info online. I only have my phone and my xbox to access the Internet at the moment. Makes it harder to navigate the website. Need a new battery for my laptop.

Thank you, I knew it would be in 3 steps but had no idea what the torque spec was for each step. Plus not being TTY I knew there wouldn't be any angle torque specs.

What do the bolts say on the Do they say ARP ARP? I am betting you have the 8740 studs and not the 2000's. If that is the case as bad as it sucks I would pick up a new set if they are 10 years old i mean you cant ask for much more then that out of a set of bolts especially on a boosted application.

I still haven't tore the engine down waiting on spring and warm weather. I didn't want the parts sitting out all winter. I remember them having a hex key in the top of the stud. They have only been torqued down once,
I was hoping I could one more use out of them?

I would check with ARP. They should be able to give you all the torque specs you need.
