I'm rebuilding a SOHC 2.0 SPI and have less than complete faith in the specifications provided by our trusty friends at Fel-Pro. Could I get a few second opinions on the torque specifications and end sequence for the Head Bolts? I currently have them all at 44 ft/lbs and will hold sequence until a consensus of the SPI gods has been made. Thank you.

put it in for $750 along with new water pump and timing belt since it was sitting
on an engine stand. 4 months later my son rear ends someone, cracks the radiator
and overheats the motor. Pulled the head and the head gasket is wasted and I figure
the head is warped which doesn't matter since I would go for the remanufactured/improved head any way. Only problem is I don't like the way the cylinder walls look. I little rusty looking and not completely smooth. What do you guys think? I need another replacement engine or can I just do the head? I'm new to this forum, can we post pictures?

I ended up getting a rebuilt engine and am in the middle of installing it.
I've lined up the first torque converter nut and tightned it but I can't get
the crank to turn clockwise to the next torque converter stud. Any ideas
on why? Both the engine and the torque converter were able to turn when
I started.

The motor in my Focus was rebuilt fairly recently. Im willing to bet this or a timing belt went out on it and took everything else with it.
