Your so close to being blocked. How many damn times do you need to ask the same question? Do you not read, or not read instruction manuals?

Buy a service manual. If you're using new bolts, which you should have gotten from Mantic, you needn't use any additional thread locker.

Some people reuse flywheel bolts, in which case you need to use new thread locker.

THANK YOU! I truly appreciate it. I do have a manual and referenced it for torque specs,but mantic directions kinda contradict each other....and I haven't put bellhousing back on yet....so I was just making perfectly certain I didn't make a mistake. This is not something I want to do again....especially on jackstands. Thank you again.

When you start to abuse the clutch, you will have memories of laying on your back installing it and change your driving habits!

Just do whatever you need and ask as many questions until you feel comfortable. If you're not sure the factory dab of loctite won't hold, add a dab of your own to it.

PS: Welcome to the **** list lol

No,everything is ready to bolt in.....but I sent my fuel tanks off for a custom fuel system upgrade and haven't got them back yet. Could install drivetrain,but much easier to deal with fuel tanks with it removed. Hopefully this week.....! Also doing a dual wideband setup,dual valvesprings and guides,fuel rails,injectors and smaller pulley.....so I've got plenty of other stuff to do...lol

I just installed my 5.5" triple disc Tilton at the end of December with stage 2 dif and 4.10s. My whole clutch set up weighs 16 pounds, people cry about a 40 pound set up yet mustangs come with them from the factory at that weight. OP you will like the response of the car. There is a possibility you will need to turn off your random misfire codes so your traction control wont glow like a Christmas tree.You may also want to bump your idle up to 750 - 800 rpm. mine is at 850 just for ease of engagement.
