      valve cover tightening sequence

      Nowhere can I find the sequence for tightening the valve cover bolts after installation of a new valve cover gasket. The torque for the bolts is about 89 lb in but I can't find the sequence for tightening them. I went to O'Reilly's and was told that the manufacturer has not yet released a service manual. So, they couldn't tell me.

      Garage empty: add car
      its 89 inch lbs, if its that..

      you start in the middle, tighten working front to back and staggered outwards. Much like the patten of head bolts.
