Odd Tension Bolt Layout?

Hello there,

I am fairly new to engine rebuilds and I have a question involving my old 12a motor.

I am to the stage where I loosen and remove the tension bolts. I am watching lots of videos and reading the rx7 manuals but my tension bolts are set out differently.

Not sure of the order now.

Please help and is possible annotate the pic I have attached with the order.

Thanks in Advance,
Declan

All '74-up tension bolts have the same layout, there's just one or two that sometimes are there and sometimes aren't in the intake port area.

I've never loosened them in any kind of order, world hasn't ended. I do crack them all a half turn or so loose before going back and removing them entirely.

Look at the old twin dizzy engines for the original layout.
