"I stripped a spark plug thread and need to put in a heli coil. I don't remember the torque sequence and ft-lbs to put the head gasket back on after I take it off. Any suggestions, I couldn't find it in a search."

"No need to take the head off, use grease on the tap to catch the cuttings and install the helicoil.If you take the head off, just start in the middle and torque up to 240 inch pounds (3 steps )in a circular pattern. Don't forget to make sure that the head is flat."
