Honda Accord Valve Cover Gasket

going to install new valve cover gasket on 89 honda accord 2.0L carb engine.

Does anyone know the FT-LB amount for the head crown bolts, and the order if there is one?

From your terminology it looks like you're intending to replace the headgasket, rather than the rocket cover gasket, as there's only an order in which to tighten head bolds, not standard rocker/valve cover bolts (although obviously common sense says tighten them evenly, lol). As with all bolts, there will be a torque setting, but I've never used it for these nuts/bolts. Head bolts are completely different and will require torquing! If you really want to torque them up, a Haynes manual or similar will contain all these settings!
