Straight from my Ford Contour/Mercury Mystique service manual.

After the connecting rod bearings have been fitted, clean and apply a light coat of Engine Assembly Lubricant D9AZ-19579-D or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C80-A to the journal and connecting rod bearings. Install the connecting rod cap. Tighten the new torque-to-yield connecting rod cap bolts alternately in several passes to 35 N*m (26 lb*ft). Rotate connecting rod bolts an additional 85-95 degrees.

If you have any other questions, check out the "REAL" Contour/Mystique forum. www.contour.org.
