Check if you have early type or later type head bolts. Early types have plain shanks, later types have a waist cut in them half way down. There are 10 bolts in both cases. Tighten early type bolts as follows: 1. Bolt 1 is the middle bolt on the carb side of the engine. Bolt 2 is the middle bolt across on the other side of the head. Bolt 3 is the one to the left of Bolt 1 and Bolt 4 is to the left of Bolt 2. Bolt 5 is to the right of Bolt 1 and Bolt 6 is to the right of Bolt 2. Bolt 7 is to the left of Bolt 3 at the back of the engine, with Bolt 8 to the left of Bolt 4 at the back of the engine. Bolt 9 is at the front of the engine to the right of Bolt 5 and bolt 10 is opposite that to the right of Bolt 6. Torque them all to 43 ft-lbs. 2. Go over all the bolts again in the same order as above and torque them up to 80 ft-lbs. 3. Warm the engine up fully and then let it cool down again completely. 4. Slacken off Bolt 1 by 30 degrees counterclockwise and then retighten to 80 ft-lbs. 5. Re-torque all remaining bolts to 80 ft-lbs. Later type bolts are easier, and done in the same order as the early ones. 1. Tighten initially to 15 ft-lbs. 2. Go over the bolts again in the same order and tighten to 45 ft-lbs 3. Go over the bolts a third time in the same order and tighten a further 1/4 turn (90 degrees). That's all.

If you are meaning the tightening sequence, a "star" pattern is the most universally accepted method. Choose one lug as as a starting point and then crisscross to the farthest away in a star pattern. Be sure to "seat" the lug nuts first before applying final torque.

The lug nut torque for that 1993 Volvo 960 is 63 ft.lbs.

The 'Torque measured' amount on a Volvo mini digger is 1600RPM. The Max Torque Measurement on a Volvo mini digger is 75.2lb feet with 102 NM. Although there are many specifications in a mini digger the torque, this device is created to give outstanding performance.
