    From Jeff, who still can't get through to the list.  His new head gasket
is in place, but it's time for the re-torque.  Any suggestions would be
appreciated.  Thanks,
    Scott Kair

Right off hand about all I can tell you w/o specific numbers is that the
engine was manufactured between about August of 1984 and October of 1985. It
has mechanical lifters and the 12 point hex headbolts. I don't know how much
my buddy tourqued it to but I just did it to the 44lbs sequence and am now
waiting for the advice of you and the collective. Thanks to you Scott & the
rest of the list, Sorry I cant post to list directly, Scott Kair has been a
great help in this case.
Sincerely     Jeff Rakús
