Thanks Danny

Re: clutch\\tranny

Been a while, but 45 foot pounds sounds about right. Good and snug, tighten the pressure plate one turn per bolt at a time till it is all snugged down onto the flywheel, use loc-tite. Not shure if you should use loc-tite on the tranny to bellhousing bolts, something worries be about the aluminum, might just use antisieze. Rrich would know more.

The clutch pressure plate will need to be torqued to the flywheel. I do not know what engine you have, so I would not be able to give a correct torque setting of your clutch pressure plate. Usually the transmission to bellhousing bolts have a torque specification, and the bellhousing to engine bolts also have a torque specification.

Re: clutch\\tranny

Very light oil on the crank/flywheel bolts, and clutch cover bolts. The clutch cover bolts are not regular bolts, they have a shoulder to center it and take the torque. Available at any speed shop if needed.

Antisieze, new grade 5 bolts, new lock washers, new flat washers and 30-40 lbs. bellhousing to block, tranny to adaper, adapter to bellhousing. You need thin flat washers to keep the split lock washers from digging into the aluminum. Make sure the bolts are the right length, they should go all the way through the threaded portion, but not beyond.
Don't forget a dab of graphite grease on the pilot bushing, fork face, pivot ball and trans snout.

Be fussy.

Re: clutch\\tranny

Just looked it up.
in ft/lbs

flywheel to crank - 50-65
flywheel housing to block- bellhousing 30-40
clutch to flywheel 30-40
do the trans to adapter and adapter to bellhousing 30-40 too

Had to modify my previous post -- had it too much, started wondering, looked it up.
