The purpose of measuring the diameter of each bolt is to make sure it hasn't stretched. If the diameter is not consistent it means the bolt has stretched and you need to replace it. You tighten the bolts in 3 (?) stages. The first stage you use the torque wrench. The second and third you turn the bolt a specified number of degrees. I will look up the details tonight.

You only gave half the information. If this guy torques his head to 22 lb's and thinks he is done, he is going to be a little upset when he blows another gasket.

All this is per Haynes manual.
Step1 22lbs
step2 Tighten an additional 90 degrees
step3 Tighten an additional 90 degrees

If you are using new bolts:
step4 Tighten an additional 90 degrees
