SOURCE: 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.

The haynes book is not recommended since there are numerous mistakes and they still will not update. One of the biggest is the firing order.
The factory service manual is the only way to go.
Head bolts - 46 - 50.5 lbs (there is an order sequence for the bolts)
Intake & exhuast manifolds- 13.5 - 20 lbs
Flywheel - 41.5 - 47 lbs
Clutch cover - 13.5 - 20 lbs

1.Flywheel - 61 to 69 Foot Pounds
2.Pressure Plate - 25 to 33 Foot Pounds
3.Bell Housing - No specs found. I would say 25 to 35 foot pounds should be sufficient.
Bolts clean on ->flywheel to crank, ->pressure plate to flywheel, and ->bell housing to back of engine, I would use TWO drops of Loctite Red threadlocker, on ALL of these bolts.
Hope you have an alignment tool for your clutch disk when you install it. Auto parts stores sell the plastic one's cheap! Saves a LOT of headaches!
Tighten the pressure plate EVENLY! Snug the bolts down until they just TOUCH, then go in a criss-cross pattern when tightening. Do the tightening in incremental stages! You turn one bolt one thread, you go across to the opposite side, and turn that bolt one thread. Keep criss-crossing so the pressure plate goes down EVENLY. (YES, it's a pain in the keister!)
If NOT, you'll have a warped pressure plate, and it will be junk!
Thanks for letting me say that, I feel better.

try the haynes manual ,never used a torque meter in 40 yrs of fixing cars ,so to me the clutch is a 3/8th ratchet and hold the ratchet half way down ,go around bolts twice though to pull clutch down evenly ,slave cylinder is alloy and so is the bell housing so again not too tight ,now the bell housing bolts need a good grounch about 70lbs at a rough guess but again 1/2inch drive and a knuckle bar is favourite .starter 3/8th drive full length of rachet bar will do and agin do them twice
