Tighten the bolts in a pattern as such;
8 6 2 4 10
9 3 1 5 7 So if you were looking straight down onto the head, the first bolt you'd tighten would be the center one, closest to you. The second bolt you'd tighten is the center one farthest from you. The 3rd would be one left for middle closest to you, 4th would be one right from center, farther from you...Make sence? Tighten them all in that sequence, to 29 ft-lbs. After they are all tightened in that order, start from 1 and tighten them all to 51ft-lbs. Then finally, tighten them all down to 72ft-lbs. Make sure to follow that order every time. If a bolt makes a wierd noise while you are tightening it, loosen the bolt, and retorque it from the 1st step.
