Apparently no one knows, or cares, but the answer is in the service manual. The head nuts are torqued from 52 to 54 lbf FT. Give me you email address and I'll send you a diagram straight from the service manuel, showing the torque sequence.

Their pretty easy to locate. Try David Boger, he posts on this site and everydayxj.com. If you want the diagram, pm me with your email address.

Keith,
Hi, Would you happen to have the service manual for '99 XJ8?
If yes, would you send it to [email protected]?

Sending an entire service manual would be a pretty long ordeal. Your best be would be to check ebay for one of their service manuals on disk, usally pretty cheap.

Terry, you may have already found this, if not, Christo has your manual in a thread here in the General Tech Help.

I think his manuals are for the later model cars, not an 88, but might be wrong.
