In SGE you would just edit the jobseqno file.

In PBS that sequence number is held in the file serverdb, and I have
had call to alter it once when we upgraded a cluster and I wanted
to keep a continuity of job sequence numbers.

As serverdb is an XML file in Torque, if I Google serves me well, so I
would try installing then running the first job,
stopping then editing serverdb?
