3, 4 and 5, starting from pulley side.
After applying engine oil to main bearing cap No.1
bolts ((1) – (10)) and main bearing cap No.2 bolts
((11) – (20)), tighten them gradually as follows.
a) Tighten bolts ((1) – (10)) to 30 N⋅m (3.0 kgf-m,
22.0 lb-ft) according to numerical order as shown
by using a 12 corner socket wrenches.
b) In the same manner as in Step a), tighten them
to 50 N⋅m (5.0 kgf-m, 36.5 lb-ft).
c) In the same manner as in Step a), retighten them
to 60°.
d) Tighten bolts ((11) – (20)) to 25 N⋅m (2.5 kgf-m,
18.0 lb-ft) according to numerical order as
Tightening torque
Main bearing cap No.1 bolt ((1) – (10)):
Tighten 30 N⋅m (3.0 kgf-m, 22.0 lb-ft), 50 N⋅m
(5.0 kgf-m, 36.5 lb-ft) and 60° by the specified
Main bearing cap No.2 bolt ((11) – (20)):
Tighten 25 N⋅m (2.5 kgf-m, 18.0 lb-ft) by the
specified procedure
After tightening cap bolts, check to be sure
that crankshaft rotates smoothly when
turning it by 12 N⋅m (1.2 kgf-m, 9.0 lb-ft)
torque or below.
7) If necessary, press-fit rear oil seal (1) to oil seal
