I'm just trying to find out the order to tighten down the camshaft bolts. As well as the Torque specs for each bolt.
Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Surprisingly, the manual doesn't provide a sequence. It does give the torque spec. I attached it below.

If I was doing this, I would suggest starting at center and work outward. Tighten to 1/2 the final torque and then go back and tighten to the specifications.

Make sure the cam bearings/caps are fully lubricated before you install the caps.

Let me know if you have other questions.
