The bolts should be 12 mm. The manufactures don't usually give tightening tourques for the clutch cover but I think if you take them to 23nm you'll be fine. Make sure that you check them for stetch before fitting them and as its a rotating mass, make sure they're all same sizi and wieght. There should be a number on the head of each, check to make sure the same number or symbol appeares on all. Regards Johngee

Isuzu 4fe flywheel and clutch pressure plate torque settings please


If this was in a basic workshop the flywheel would be as tight as you can reasonably pull with a 1/2 inch breaker bar, clutch pressure plate bolts with a 1/2 inch ratchet. Loctite the bolts. Tighten evenly across the bolts in sequence. If you really want to know hopefully someone will have a manual and sign in.

Pressure plate bolts install


Not sure what the question is, but pressure plate bolts should be installed after you put the clutch alignment tool into the clutch disk, then tighten them a little bit at a time in a criss-cross pattern to avoid warping the pressure plate. Use a dab of blue lock tite on each, and don't over tighten them. Use correct torque value as shown in your shop manual. They must not be over tightened as this may lead to bolt failure. I once saw a truck which the owned thought had thrown a rod and locked up, only to find the clutch had recently been replaced, bolts over torqued, and one broke, causing the bolt head to jam between the flywheel starter ring gear and the bell housing. It is not a bad idea to replace these bolts with new ones also.

Where is the torque converter and drive plate on 97 eclipse gst manual transmission.. so i may markmatch it before removing the tranny


hi, if you have a manual gearbox then you dont have a torque converter a torque converter is what changes the gears in an automatic gearbox as your is manual all you will have inside your gearbox is a pressure plate a clutch plate and a thrust bearing witch operates the clutch when you press the pedal down.
The only thing you need to line up on a manual box is when you have fitted the new clutch you need to have a tool that holds the clutch plate central so that when you tighten the bolts up on the pressure plate the clutch stays central if you dont do this you wont be able to get the gearbox back onto the engine as the spline from the gearbox wont be able to go through the center of the clutch into the engine.

You can make or use you own tool to hold the clitch dead center as long as its a good fit and about the same size as the spline, so once you have the new clutch in and the pressure plate loosely bolted on you can still move the clutch around behind the pressure plate now right in the center their is a hole in the pressure plate and the clutch plate this is where the tool needs to be put so that the clutch plate remains dead center whilst you tighten the pressure plate up this will then make sure that the spline on the gearbox lines up properly not doing this will make it impossible to get the gearbox on properly.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

See Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the transaxle assembly.
  4. If the clutch assembly is to be reused, matchmark the pressure plate and the flywheel so they can be assembled in the same position.
  5. Install flywheel holding tool T84P-6375-A or equivalent, in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine and engage the tooth of the holding tool into the flywheel ring gear.

  1. Loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time, in a crisscross pattern, until the spring tension is relieved, to prevent pressure plate cover distortion.
  2. Support the pressure plate and unfasten the retaining bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel.

If the flywheel shows any signs of overheating (blue discoloration) or if it is badly grooved or scored, it should be refaced or replaced.
  1. Inspect the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch fork for wear. Replace parts as needed.

To install:
  1. If removed, install a new pilot bearing using a suitable installation tool.
  2. If removed, install the flywheel. Make sure the flywheel and crankshaft flange mating surfaces are clean. Tighten the flywheel retaining bolts to 71-76 ft. lbs. (96-103 Nm) on the 1.8L engine or 54-67 ft. lbs. (73-91 Nm) on the 1.9L engine.
  3. Clean the pressure plate and flywheel surfaces thoroughly. Position the clutch disc and pressure plate into the installed position and support them with a dummy shaft or clutch aligning tool. If the clutch assembly is being reused, align the matchmarks that were made during the removal procedure.
  4. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in the correct sequence to 13-20 ft. lbs. (18-26 Nm). Remove the alignment tool.

How do you change the clutch and pressure plate?


Easily. Remove the gear box, the roller bearing is fitted to the box, so yoou dont have to worry. The clutch and plate is fixed to the engine held in with hex nuts, you'll need allan keys to remove them, remove the bolts and the clutch and pressure plate will fall away. Take the new one from the box, being carefull not to contaminate with grease or oil that is on your hands, fit the pressure plate into the clutch assembly and line up to the engine and loosly tighten up so the pressure plate will move with a little resistance. This is where the fun starts. Get your socket set handle and push it through the housing into the engine. Centralise the pressure plate as accurately as you can. Offer the gearbox slowly to the clutch and try to push it home. The pressureplate should have enought movement in it to move slightly to allow the gear box to fit. Once fitted, slowly and levelly remove the box, then tighten all of the clutch housing into place. Refit the box, tighten and go for a cup of coffee to congratulate yourself! The only other adjustments you have to make are to the clutch cable. Loosen the lock nut, loosen the adjuster bolt, tighten the adjuster bolt until the cable becomes taught, depress the clutch and you should feel the clutch release. Tighten the locknot and that's it. Hope all goes well, any problems let me know any problems let me know and I'll help. Regards, Dave.

91 legend clutch specs


I am assuming you have never installed a clutch before. What you are asking about is a clutch alignment tool. It is a tool made from plastic that is identical to the output shaft of the transmission.

As you put the clutch disc, pressure plate up against the flywheel, just start the 6 or 8 bolts, but before tightening them down, push the clutch alignment tool all the way into the flywheel pilot bearing. The trick of this tool is to get a close approximation of alignment between the pressure plate, clutch disc and flywheel before tightening down the pressure plate bolts.

Depending on how good your eye is, will determine how easily your transmission will line up and slide in place.

As for any specs, there are none. It all in the eye.
