If all the clearances have checked out, follow ARP torque specs and directions with lube and sealer. Apply lube on all washers and bolt thread that do not go into water jacket. Apply Permatex teflon sealer to any bolt thread that go into a water jacket. The torque for the main bolts and head bolts is 70 ft. lbs. and rod bolt torque is 55 ft. lbs. unless stated other wise in your kit.
