    Hi All

    I have been on this forum for a good few years now and realy enjoy the help and advise given and received

    I have recently purchased a Golf Mk3 2.8 VR6 with just short of 150,000 miles on the clock, it feels like over the years a few of the ponies have left the stable

    So I have removed and stripped the engine.

    Found a bit of ware on the piston bores and valve seats. So.Cylinder stripped, cleaned, new guides, seats and seals looking nice.
    Cylinder block in for 1mm oversize rebore Mahle pistons already purchased.

    Crankshaft in for a check and polish (when returned I will order a set of shells)

    New
    parts siting ready to go:

    Complete gasket set and seals
    Headbolts
    Complete chain kit and tensioners
    Water pump
    Oil pump
    Auxiliary belt

    As the build progresses I will add photos

    Now my question is:

    When it comes to the engine rebuild I will need a manual/torque settings:
    Headbolts
    Big end bolts
    Crankshaft bearing carrier bolts
    Flywheel bolts
    To name a few
    Can anyone help please with the details/manual

    Thanks in advance
