Re: I need the bolt torque specs
Go to the local auto parts store and purchase a Chiltons Repair Manual on your car, it has all the torque specs listed for this. Or you could try the library and see if there is one there for your car and just look it up for free..... just write it all down.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

you need first wipe clean fly wheel and pressure plate machined surface clean then you need to install position clutch disc and pressure plate with clutch held in place with alignment tool. tighten pressure plate to flywheel bolts only finger tight.working around pressure plate.center the clutch disc by ensuring the alignment tool is through the splined hub and into the recess in the crankshaft.wiggle tool up down or side to side as needed to bottom tool.tighten the pressure plate to flywheel bolts a little at a time working in a crisscross pattern to prevent distortion of the cover.after all bolts snug tight tighten then torque bolts 30 ft lbs for V8 if engine V6 torque bolts 15 ft lbs.be sure to use high temperature grease on release bearing inner groove place grease on transaxle input shaft bearing retainer.
please spend $25 and get a mechanics manual for your vehicle there are far too many things to explain.. the $5 answer would be:
1. remove trans from engine
2. unbolt pressure plate incrermentally and evenly as not to distort pressure plate
3. check flywheel for run-out, end-play, scoring and burnishing on flywheel/pressure plate, turn,re-surface/replace if req'd
4. install new pilot bearing clutch disc using special alignment tool and torque all bolts to factory spec and procedure , some recomend new bolts
5.reassemble in reverse order
You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enought detail to do you any good.
disconect the negative battery cable, set parking brake
locate the trans mounting bolts
get something to support the engine and something to support the trans
seperate the trans from the motor by removing the bolts. On transverse mounted engines you will probably have to pull the trans to get enough room to remove the clutch and you'll probably have to remove the 1/2 shaft axles (front wheel cars) or drive shaft (rear wheel drive cars)
If replacing the entire clutc assembly (pressure plate, flywheel, and clutch), loosen the pressure plate mounting bolts gradually working your way around the pressure plate. If only replacing the clutch then seperate the sperate the pressure plate from the flywheel and remobe. Align clutch with a clutch allignment tools and replace pressure plate. Torque bolts to spec. reconnect the trans to the motor. Few other things to think about. You should replace the throwout bearng when doing a clutch. Lube the clutch fork as directed without getting lub on the clutch face. Hopefully I have convinced yu to get a manual or you will be hating life if you take this on without it.
You will need tools and a jack and a really good strong friend.
Remove the drive shaft. Unbolt the trans from the engine and put it aside. Unbolt the pressure plate and remove. The clutch plate will fall on you. Remove the fly wheel for resurfacing.
Take everything to the auto parts place that has a machine shop.
Get the flywheel resurfaced. Purchase a new/rebuilt clutch plate and rebuilt pressure plate. Get a new throw out bearing. Also get a clutch plate alignment tool while you are there.
When you get all the stuff together, reassemble it.
Put the fly wheel back in ... becareful of the starter. Add the clutch plate and the pressure plate. Use the alignment tool. Bolt it all back to proper torque spece. You will have to ask at the auto parts place for the torque specs. Oh yea, you will need a torque wrench for this.
Put the trans back in. You should probably change the universal joints while you are at it, front and rear.
Or - you could have a shop do this for about $500.00 to $1,000.00 and save on the band aids.
Remove drive shaft,remove crossmember under transmission.Remove transmission and diconnect linkage.Remove bell housing,and clutch berring assembely.Remove bolts on pressure plate.Once this is done.Remove fly wheel for machineing.you will need a pilot shaft to alighn clutch assemblely.Possible one will come with new clutch and pressure plate.Reverse assemblely in same order remember to torque all your bolts with torque wrench.Take your time.
