Tighten with a rachet and a decent socket with the shape of the nut in the end ,tighten to about a grunt and a slight arm muscle strain which is about 50lbs ,in two staged in the book it says 22nm +90? which to me is a load of hog wash ,make sure the shell with the hole in it for the oil spray is in the top con rod end and bit of grease in their as well before you fit the bottom one then a pull down first time with a rachet to firm pull then the second pull ,then turn engine over to make sure its not locked up then do the next one ,the lips in the shells that hold the shell inside the caps normally go together on one side and the con rod oil spray hole should spray towards the thrust side of the piston .

If the bearings need replacing the crankshaft will need grinding. After the crank has been ground you will have to buy suitable main and conrod bearings EG: 10thou undersize.
After fitting new bearings to the reground crank no adjustment is necessary.

If you have a vehicle application for the motor you can get a Haynes or Chilton manual from your local auto parts store. They usual run around $30.
