3.2 Carrera flywheel bolt torque ERROR

In the Dempsey book (2003 edition), page 139, the tork spec for the flywheel bolts is given as 120Nm, OR 88 foot pounds. The spec page on page 200 specifies 90Nm, or 66.3 foot pounds. This matches the Bentley book, so I assume the latter is correct.

BUT, I torked the flywheel bolts to 88 foot pounds. The threads on the last bolt I tightened started to collapse. So, after a little investigation, I noticed this error in the book (in a real BAD place!). So, I replaced the bad bolt with a good used bolt (I know...I know....). But, what about the bolts tightened to 88 pounds? Leave em alone, or loosen and retork to 66?
