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.

Hi! i hope this will help you.
tighten in 2 steps:
1st - 22ft.lbs
2nd - 58ft. lbs
then loosen all bolts completely.
Final torque is in 2 steps:
1st- 22ft. lbs.
2nd - 54-61ft. lbs
( if angle torquing in 2nd step, turn all bolts 80 to 85 degrees clockwise with an angle torque wrench. ) i hope this will help you.

Most definetly yes. It should run you around 500 dollars. If you timing belt breaks it will destroy your valves and head.
