Hi Ian, I totally forgot about this
Ok, so what i have in front of me doesnt state the order but its usually from the inside working out
stage 1 - 5Nm
stage 2 - 15Nm
stage 3 - 45Nm
stage 4 - angle tighten a further 90 degrees
stage 5 - angle tighten a further 90 degrees
You will also need new bolts (the old ones will be stretched)

hi sorry about all the questions i was just wondering is it possible to remove the crankshaft and drop the pistobs out the bottom of the block or could i just undo thr pistons from the shaft and take them out through the top many thanks

The pistons should be removed/fitted from the top. So I wouldn't remove the crankshaft
