Main caps are torqued one at a time beginning at No. 5. McAfee's belief is that you should be able to turn a crankshaft with one hand on the snout, whether you have one main cap torqued or all five. Resistance should be uniform. With moly lube on the threads, each main cap is torqued in three increments to 110 ft-lb. The studs should never be bottomed out, but instead, one-quarter to one-half turn from bottoming out. Never use a thread locker because if you ever have to remove the studs, it will be very difficult.
