You can use the 15 ft/lbs plus 70 degrees if you have access to the tool that shows degrees, I got mine at NAPA. It is kind of bulky so you may need an extension so it clears everything. The final choice is yours as to which method you use.
so I just loosen all rod bolts , then retorque all 8 to 45 ft lbs in any order and make sure there is lots of oil or just wet ? I need to do this and get motor back togther asap
