Another 3 pc. crank question

This regards a new 3 pc crank installation. I took a 1 pc. out. The bearings are pressed in nicely - Just have to begin setting the chain line.

Question is, when putting the arms on the splines, I assume the center bolt should be tightened first, squeezing the assembly together, and then the pinch bolt tightened?

How hard do I gronk on the center bolt?

Any other setup procedure advice is VERY welcome.

TIA
