'92 1.9L head bolt install

First of all, you MUST use new head bolts.
-apply light coat of engine oil to the threads of the head bolts
-tighten in sequence (*) to 44 ft/lbs (60 Nm)
-loosen head bolts appx two turns and torque AGAIN to 44 ft/lbs (60 Nm)
-after 2nd torquing, turn the head bolts an additional 90 degrees
-after additional 90 degree turn, turn ANOTHER 90 degrees (that's 180 degrees from 44 ft/lb mark, but it must be done in steps)

(*)sequence...
