What is the torque requirements for the head studs? I can't find it in the manual.

Also, how do you torque down studs?

There are tools designed to grip the stud away from the threads, or you can just put two nuts opposing each other onto the top threads.

Find a chart that gives torque spec by bolt size, there's one here in the torque spec sticky thread, I think. Tight enough to not vibrate loose is the spec I would use, the actual clamping of the head gasket will happen when the nuts at the top of the stud are torqued to spec.
