You're welcome Dan, a lot of this stuff you just learn after years of wrenching by feel, some things like heads you need to torque to a specific number other bolts and nuts you just learn to pattern things and tighten by feel.
Go easier on aluminum and pot metal than you would on cast iron and steel.
Pay attention to things like your timing cover 10 to 12 on it (water pump) and pattern it going in increments.
General rule is 1/3 example 30 pounds, 10 in a pattern then 20 and finally your 30.
Taking things down evenly reduces your chances of leaks.
