Default 3.0 V6 timing job; check those camshaft bolts!

I'm doing the timing service on my '05 3.0, due to a leaking coolant pump, and also because it's 70,000 miles since the last TB job. The previous time, we used the cam holding tools but skipped removing the cam sprocket access caps, and loosening the 18mm cam bolts. This time I'm doing it by the book, and found one of the camshaft sprocket bolts only finger-tight! So, when doing this job, or having someone else do it, make sure that these bolts are loosened (with the cams lock tools installed), the new belt installed and tensioned, the exhaust sprockets set with the special tool, and then these cam bolts tightened to spec.
