1998 Softail Custom torque specs

Hello All, I'm new to the site- Hope you all are doing well. Anyone have torque specs for cylinder heads. It appears I've got to do a little tightening. Thanks.

Re: 1998 Softail Custom torque specs

Although this is for a 1994 evo engine it should be similar on yours
Its a three step process
1st = 7-9 ft-lb
2nd = 12-14 ft-lb
3rd = mark a line on the head bolt and the cylinder head and turn the line through 90 degrees or 1/4 turn use the mark on the cylinder head as the reference point
sequence to tighten
front cylinder = 1 front right, 2 front left, 3 rear right, 4 rear left
rear cylinder = 1 front left, 2 front right, 3 rear left, 4 rear right
