I offered to help a friend out  :hitting_self_roller: and work on his Iseki for him. It was overheating and he thought that it might have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. He had the tractor tore down to the engine and it sat like that for 3 years. He asked if I would look at it for him. Before I pulled the head I contacted Lubbock Gasket and they assured me they could make a head gasket for it which they later did. Now it is time to reassemble the engine and I need to know what the torque is for the head and rocker arm bolts. It's an Iseki TX1210 F. 2 cylinder Diesel and around 14 or 15 HP.  Is or was there a model of the Bolens diesel tractors that was comparable to this and would any of you know what to torque the head bolts? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated  :thank_you:

Tractor = Iseki 1210 F

Torque = 94 to 101 FT. Lbs.

Robb did say that a Mitsubishi dealer could have parts.

No torque sequence was specified but I will start in the center and work out starting at 50 FT. Lbs. and working my way up 10 Ft. Lbs. at a time.
