429 SCJ 4 bolt main caps torque sequence and amounts

Can anybody tell me the torque amounts and sequence for a 429 4bolt block? I've looked all over for this information and I can't find it for a 4bolt block. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Tracy

I always torque the center main last, see below

And don't forget to set your thrust bearing before torquing the center cap :idea:
