Hi I am in the process of replacing the bottom bearings since Mazda did not honor their warranty. I was wondering if you could tell me what the torqe specifications are on the connecting rods usually theres two sets, you torqe it to the first # then the second #, in a specific order usually from the center out, but I am not sure. Also if I could get the torqe #'s for the main crank bearings also in thier order.

thanks

Vladimir
