Head Bolt Torque Settings for a Kia Pride??

OK, my younger brother said that if I could fix his Kia Pride I could have it, so I fixed it and now I have it.

Anyway once I'd got it running I wanted to give it a service as I knew it hadn't been serviced in forever. One major problem which I did know about was that a garage had cross threaded one of the spark plugs into the head and it no longer comes out....it's been in the head for 80-90,000 miles now and had rusted to hell (but still runs fine amazingly). But I wanted it out so I tried unscrewing it, but it just snapped as I expected. So I stripped the head, and sent it away to be helicoiled, I got it back last night, my wallet is now 20 lighter, but they did a good job so that's cool.

My problem now is that I thought a manual would be a available for the Kia Pride, but I can't seem to find anything...I'm fine with putting it all back together, but I don't know the Torque settings for the head bolts, and I don't know the sequence in which they need to be put back.

Does anyone know this information? Or does anyone know where I could find this information?

Thanks in advance guys

Baz
