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.

SOURCE: head bolt torque spec
Always use new head bolts.
1)tighten to 40ft/lbs
2)back off 1/2 turn
3)tighten back to 40ft/lbs
4)tighten an additional 90 degrees
5)tighten an additional 90 degrees.

When installing a torque converter there are two separate steps for two separate shafts with two different sets of splines.You must first turn the torque converter when on the input shafts until you feel Both steps engage one at a time.And with each step the torque converter will go deeper into the bell housing.To tell if you have caught each of the steps correctly you will be able to easily turn the torque converter,even when the trans and engine are pulled up tight.There will even be a gap between the flex plate and torque converter.What ever you do don't use the starter to get the torque converter all the way in.Take out the two bottom bolts of the trans and replace them with 1" longer ones.Then remove all the other bolts from the housing.Slide the trans as far back on those two bolts as you can until the torque converter will turn easily again,then turn while pushing in toward the trans until you feel the converter slip in that last step.Slide the trans back up to the engine and make sure the converter still spins freely,then finish your install.My first trans I literally broke the transmission housing by not fully seating the converter.Hope this helps?

For 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.4L SFI SOHC 4cyl the Head Bolt Torque sequence
------------ | 10 6 2 3 7 | | 9 5 1 4 8 | ------------
Step: 1 - Torque to 25 ft/lbs
Steps: 2 - Torque to 50 ft/lbs
Steps: 3 - Torque to 50 ft/lbs
Steps: 4 - Turn 90 degreesRecheck final torque in sequence
Caution:Engine uses torque to yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder headis replaced or re installed to obtain proper torque specification.
Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).
