Torquing each bolt at least five times before the final torque is applied during assembly. This is because new bolts need to establish a wear pattern within the threads.
Fiat 124, 1600 cm³ engine.
The old Fiat 1600 engine has "press fit" in the piston pin (just as all the old LADA 1200-1600 engines).
This means you cannot use the lightweight connecting rods without some further modifications.
