M8 x 1 Con rod bolts are tightened in 3 stages, 0.5kgm (3.5ft.lb) 2.5kgm (18ft.lb) & then a further quarter of a turn, 90° if you've got an angle gauge.
Main bearings are 5.5kgm (40ft.lb) then a further quarter of a turn.
I would recommend you use new bolts as the bolt must be pretty close to its yield point by the end of the 3rd stage.
PS If the info is wrong sue Peter Russek, got the info from their repair manual.
