Tighten the bolts in sequence using the following steps and torque values:
Step 1: Tighten bolts 1-8, 27 N.M (20 ft. Lbs.).
Step 2: Verify that bolts 1-8, all reached 27 N.M (20 ft. Lbs.), By repeating step 1 without loosening the bolts. Tighten bolts 9 thru 12 to 14 N.M (10 ft. Lbs.).
Step 3: Tighten bolts 1-8, 90 . (Fig 3).
Step 4: Tighten bolts 1-8, 90 , again. Tighten bolts 9-12, 26 N.M (19 ft. Lbs.)
