Stage 3: Tighten to 50 Nm (37 lb-ft).
Stage 4: Tighten an additional 90 degrees.
The guide on this forums said not to, but a step by step video said to re use the crank bolt. I did re use it, because I couldnt get the new one in all the way (maybe i did something wrong?)
I attempted to tighten the bolt like you said, but again not sure if i did it 100% correctly. I may take it off and do it again..
