'62 220SE torque specs for head bolts, rod bolts?

Hello all,

I'm having trouble finding this information. I'm refitting the pistons and the head for my 1962 220SE coupe, and I need to to know the torque specs for the rod bolts and head bolts (including the small allen-head bolts used on the head). I suppose I could also use torque specs for the oil pan bolts (the ones that hold the entire pan to the block).

I'm also looking for a valve stem seal set for this car. I've only found two sources (Autohaus AZ and CarPartsDiscount), and both are backordered, with an expected delivery of 1-2 months. Any other sources for these?

It is on the Factory Service Manual:

Rod bolts 37 Nm

Head bolts 78 Nm cold engine. Run engine hot until 80 degrees Centigrade, then 88 Nm. It needs retightening after 300-1000 km. Loosen bolts (one by one) before retightening. Drench the bolts and nuts in oil.

The allen bolts don't have a specific torque. See the note on the second picture: use a hand key it says in German.

The values below are in mkp, for Nm or lb/ft use conversion tables/website.

you might be able to get the valve stem seals through the classic center, I would email them as I never get anyone via the call line. the address is Mercedes-Benz - Home of C, E, S, CLK, CLS, CL, SLK, SL, SLR, R, GLK, M, GL, G Class - Heritage - Classic Center this is a good resource for new parts.
