    m6 = 6mm
    m8=8mm

    They get torqued different.

    First torque all bolts at the first listed torque setting.
    Then go through the torque sequence again using the second torque setting.

    I assume you are using new TTY bolts. If I remember correctly there is an addional 90 degrees after final torque, but not sure. Someone else may have to jump in on that one.

    Yes, it in most cases is 2 times @ torqueing the head bolts ... yes, use 1st set of numbers on first past thru, then second set of numbers on final pass.

    These are not TTY bolts.

    The 6mm are the small ones with 10 mm head and the 8mm are the bigger ones with 12mm head. The small ones only go into the bottom half of the head, the longer ones (6 around each cyl) are longer and go down into the cyl case.

ID:	342004 Yes i under stand that pat of it but look at the cylinder head section. Both are m8 bolts and have different torque as it goes first second and then first second again will a different final toque. What does that mean? c

    Look for the picture in the manual of the head in the engine assembly section, it will point out the locations of each head and torque required.
