Yet another XLNT video from xirdneh - and another sticky!

The torque values for the assorted fasteners are in the FSM in both the Engine section and the Misc. Information section at the end of the FSM.

I would also check and for some additional info which could be helpful.
You might also take the opportunity to backflush the heater core using the heater hoses - possibly use the vinegar method on it and the radiator itself - see
Also - take the opportunity before filling the overflow reservoir to remove the inevitable crud at its bottom by using a detergent and repeatedly flushing it. I used a turkey baster to remove the rinses.
