Tighten the bolts and nuts
Crankshaft Pulley Lock Bolt Installation Note
Install the SST to the camshaft.
Install the M6 x 1.0 bolt in by hand.
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise until the crankshaft is in the No.1 cylinder TDC position (until the balance weight is contacting to the SST).
Hold the crankshaft pulley using the SST.
Tighten the crankshaft pulley lock bolt in the following two steps using the SST (49 D032 316).
1) Tighten to 96 - 104 Nm (9.8 - 10.6 kgf-cm, 70.9 - 76.7 ft. Lbs.)
