Here is the FSM for the 1998 2.5 DOHC.

thought I'd add the rest of the FSM for the 1998 Legacy in case you might be interested. They come in handy.

careful on those seal cap bolts. Easy to sheer.

Especially the smaller ones towards the front IIR.

 

Note there are TWO torgue's - one for the rest of the bolts and something less fo rthe lighter ones on the end.

Hello, I'm new to the board. I came here for advice on this same topic. What would be the torque sequence and torque as in ft lbs. be for a 1997 dohc? Something in noob form. I dunno how to read what it says in the google doc, this bit below.

 

Tightening torque: N·m (kg-m, ft-lb)

T1: <Ref. to 2-3b [W4E0].>

T2: 5 (0.5, 3.6)

T3: 10±0.7 (1.0±0.07, 7.2±0.5)

T4: 20±2 (2.0±0.2, 14.0±1.4)

 

I read also that it's a sequence in 2 progressive steps to 14.5ft lbs. What does the 2 progressive steps refer to?

 

Sry if I sound like I've never done this before, that's because it is my first time. I need to change head gaskets. I just don't want to over torque the bearing cap bolts. So if someone can explain it in an easy step by step guide and show the torque pattern that would be GREAT!

 

Thanks, John
