61 144cid. automatic Head Bolts torque

Post by 61 Waycrosscomet »

Almost afraid to ask, but I just reinstalled the head after it went to machine shop.
torqued head bolts according to shop manual. cold torque, 55 then 65, then 75.

the gasket (felpro) has stamped on it, "NO RETORQUE" "NO SEALANT".

After a few heat / cold cycles, is it necessary to revisit torquing the head bolts again, or should I be good to go?

thanks.
