Hello, I want to know how to torque my bolts on my camshaft. Which one goes first and so on. I only loosen them but never took it out. Do I have to correct them before I tighten them. Please let me know? Thanks.

Good morning,

I attached the procedure and the torque specs for you.

You will need an inch pound torque wrench as well as a foot pound torque wrench that will tighten low torque to 15 lbs.

Roy

install and uniformly tighten the 14 bearing cap bolts on one side, in several passes, in the sequence shown.

Torque: 20 Nm (200 kgf. Cm, 15 ft. Lbs.)
Using a 5 mm hexagon wrench, the 2 No.3 camshaft bearing cap bolts.
Torque: 5.0 Nm (50 kgf. Cm, 44 inch lbs.)

Great thanks a lot. By the chance do you know the torque specs and sequence on the covers for it? Plus I need the exhaust manifold bolts as well too? I'm a d.I.Y. Guy trying to not to use mechanic because I got ripped off three times for it boss. Thanks for your help.
