Straight bolt on procedure. You may have a hard time geting the cap off because the upper coolant hose may be in the way of your wrench. I used a socket on the lower screw and an open wrench on the upper one. The rotor requires the use of an allen wrench. Can't remember sizes or torque specs, sorry. Hard to use a torque wrench on those little allen head bolts so I made them tight w/o over tightening. Did that make sense? Hope so. The cap is numbered so you shouldn't mess up which spark plug wire goes where, just match the numbers.
