1. flywheel bolts are 65 ft/lbs and it wouldnt hurt to put some BLUE lock-tite on em right?
2. is there any special orientation to a stock flywheel in relation to the crank other than jus put the 6 bolts in it?
3. any specific torque for clutch bolts or jus crank em down as tight as I can get em? blue lock-tite?

thanks alot guys! :D

btw; the only reason I need answers by 5 is because im puttin it all back together after dinner lol

Blue wont hurt, good safety, and whenever you tighten something down you always try to tighten it even, atleast i do, so just do them like your tighting a wheel

Tq the clutch pressure plate down to 23-25 ft lbs, or per the manufacture and as said before, I like to do it evenly also.

BTW New guy here <-------- Great forum you have!!
