Hy ga truck nut, the torques are different depending on the year 52-53, and 57-59 are 75-80 lb. ft., 54-56 are 80-90 lb. ft.. When she who must be obeyed returns home from work I'll have her post a picture of the pattern for you [I'm not confusilator savy enough for that]

Hy ga truck nut, here is the link, the pattern is on the lower right side of the page, hope that helps. Are you reinstalling the head after repairs to whatever was causing rocker arms to break? If you told us what was done, I missed it, could you summarise what was done to repair the problem please?

Ga truck nut,Would it be possible for you to post some pictures of your 503 GMC ? I read your post and never knew there was such a engine.I tried Google and got some material to read,but didn't find one picture.
