Toyota Repair/Torque settings for a toyota 4zz-fe engine


Please advise me about the following specifications in Newton Meters :
1.  The torque settings for :
        a. the cylinder head bolts.
        b. the cam-caps bolts.
        c. the fly-wheel bolts.
2.   I am aware that in most vehicles the flywheel is balanced in such a way that it can only fit one-way onto the crank or else the bolts won't align to the holes. But the 4zz flywheel seems to fit anyway it is rotated. Is there a specific way it fits or can it just go in anyway?  THANX.

cylinder head bolts- first 49Nm then turn additional 90 degrees
Cam caps- #1- 23Nm, #2 13Nm
Unable to locate flywheel specs, it can fit on whichever way it lines up with the crankshaft
my best guess going by other engines of this size would be about 120Nm
