Default so many people not knowing correct info...

ok, i torqued my flywheel into the block at 55lbs in a star then in a
a circle to make sure it was all done right, looked good, did the same to the pressure plate/clutch whatever @ 26lbs, i put the engine back in the car start bleeding the clutch, take a break, and stumble on some people saying to put them at 20, then 11, then 16, all kinds of stupid answers

im using my stock rs flywheel and a spec clutch stage 3, can i keep the pressure plate/clutch whatever at 26? from what i gather on how the tranny/clutch work, it should affect anything negatively, but what do you guys think

Not to be a smart ass or anything, but if you are tired of getting wrong answers here, get a FSM, do what it says and quit asking the help of us folks who seem to be steering you wrong...

Best Advice Ever. Most of the time those who are in the know lurk in background.

Alex,

He was trying to help by suggesting a good solution...Best Money I have spent for a 24 hour subscription online to view information on my Vehicle.

Here's a PDF on the FSM for inspecting the clutch and showing install torque and sequence specs.

You are welcome. And yes you use torque specs (stock)...You may want to torque them down 2 foot lbs. more depending on how much use those bolts have received.

You are definately right. I have gotten in big argument w/ people over using torque specs. Those of us who do this all the time develope feel for bolt tightness.

I can understand why those who dont do alot of mechanic work rely on torque specs. It is a good way to get an idea of how tight something should be.

Engine/tranny internals, and head bolts are about all you need torque specs. other than that just make sure its German Torqued: Gutentite

Exactly,
Like I said, I was not being a smart ass and was giving a dead serious answer. So many of the questions that get asked here and debated with stupid urban tuning myths could be avoided with the help of the FSM's. And has been mentioned, $20 will get a subscription for a day and plenty of time to DL everything you will need. Aftermarket clutch and pressure plate or not, you are in essence doing a factory work, so use factory instructions...

Agreed...

First few times you snap a bolt you say to yourself... o ya that was a bit too tight. The last motor install I did we didnt even have a torque wrench around. I dont even own a torque wrench; if I start building motors then I guess ill have to pick them up.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but you HAVE to use thread lock on flywheel, and clutch bolts.. I had a friend with a prelude that didn't use thread lock, and a bolt shot through his bell housing , and shreaded some gears.. just an FYI..
