Hello All;
I have two tech manuals for rebuilding the '96 Discovery I 4.0 engine. They both are very ambiguous about staggering the piston ring gaps.
There are 5 gaps: 2 compression, 2 oil control and 1 spacer.
Is there a recommended location for the gaps?

Also, one of the manual says the Rod-bolt torque is on 15 ft.Lbs + 80 degrees turn. Is that right? I have my doubts.
