Torque sequence

Can someone post a picture that shows the torque sequence for a Hornet 308? Also need the foot pounds number.

    I'd suggest that you start out in the center of the head and out in a circle. Something similar to torquing a 5.9or 6.7 Cummins diesel head

    They are both a 6 cylinder head in the bolt pattern

    Any head or manifold yiu always start in the middle and work your way out. 65-70 Ft/lbs for a Hudson cyl head.

    I use this sequence for a Hornet:

    21  15  9   2   6   12  18
    17  11  5   1   4   10  16
    19  13  7   3   8   14  20

    Like 54coupe says.  Use for all sixes from 1924 thru 1956 (except F-heads). 
    If you're stuck in a hole, stop digging.

    Are those numbers based on the factory picture or the numbers you gave in a post in 2007? You gave numbers on right side, left side, and middle. 
    Also is that right side as you look at it from front of car?

    the front is to the left, but it doesn't matter as it is from the center out.   That is the same as my sequence published some time ago.

    I believe Walt Mordenti pretty much recommended the same head bolt; torque sequence as suggested by 54coupe here.
