I just replaced a ring on my Shimano DA7800 crank set. I do not have a torque wrench. Re-installing the cranks I simply tightened the end cap (on left arm) until there was no play in the crank shaft/BB axle. Is it that simple? Any tips appreciated.

The side load by the end cap is only 1 to 1.5 Nm. Its just barely finger tight. Then use a torque wrench to tighten down the 2 pinch bolts to 14 Nm.
