The dowel pins on the cylinder block and holes on the timing chain cover should be used as a reference in order to assemble the timing chain cover to be in exact position.

Tightening torque
A (17EA) :
18.6 ~ 21.6N.m (1.9 ~ 2.2kgf.m, 13.7 ~ 15.9lb-ft)
B (2EA) :
24.5 ~ 26.5N.m (2.5 ~ 2.7kgf.m, 18.1 ~ 19.5lb-ft)
C (1EA) :
58.8 ~ 68.8N.m (6.0 ~ 7.0kgf.m, 43.4 ~ 50.6lb-ft)
D (1EA) :
58.8 ~ 68.8N.m (6.0 ~ 7.0kgf.m, 43.4 ~ 50.6lb-ft)
E (3EA) :
9.8 ~ 11.8N.m (1.0 ~ 1.2kgf.m, 7.2 ~ 8.7lb-ft)

Running the engine or performing a pressure test should not be performed within 30 minutes of assembly.
Install the front oil seal.
(Refer to Timing System - "Front Oil Seal")
Install the other parts reverse order of removal.
Refill engine oil.
Clean the battery posts and cable terminals with sandpaper. Assemble and then apply grease to prevent corrosion.
Inspect for fuel leakage.
After assembling the fuel line, turn on the ignition switch (do not operate the starter) so that the fuel pump runs for approximately two seconds and fuel line pressurizes.
Repeat this operation two or three times, then check for fuel leakage at any point in the fuel lines.
Refill radiator and reservoir tank with engine coolant.
Bleed air from the cooling system.
Start engine and let it run until it warms up. (Until the radiator fan operates 3 or 4 times.)
Turn Off the engine and let it cool down. Check the level in the radiator, add coolant if needed. This will allow trapped air to be removed from the cooling system.
Put radiator cap on tightly, then run the engine again and check for leaks.
