Why in the world are you attempting a project like this without any manual or specs?

This guide is probably what you are looking for.

Tighten the bolts to 11 ft-lbs, starting with the cap closest to the cams pressing down on the tappets

The WIS has the info. If someone can tell me how to post a pic from that, I can do that; otherwise, I can rewrite the words. It's not much.

OK - here it is....

"7. Fit the camshaft and bearing caps, start where cams are pointing down and acting on the tappets. The bearing caps are marked 1-5 for the intake side and 6-10 for the exhaust side.

Tightening Torque: 15 Nm (11 lb-ft)

__________________________________________________ _______
Important! The black bolts have an oilway and should be fitted on the spark plug side.
__________________________________________________ _______

8. Line up the marks on the camshafts with their timing shaft marks."
