I was told the torque settings are 8-9.5 ft lbs. I hope that helps you.

12Nm is common for 6x100mm with 8mm head screws.If the head of the screw is 10mm I recommend 14Nm.

1988 FLHTC E-Glide. What is the torque spec for the 4 bolts holding the clutch assembly (diaphragm spring, friction and steel plates) to the clutch basket??

Hi Thomas, it's 8 ft lbs. but there are three different settings on the clutch adjustment plate. Since you have an old bike try the "B" setting first, the end result you are looking for is the pressure plate to be as flat as possible not convex or concave. Tighten bolts in a criss cross pattern in increments. I am extremely knowledgeable and experienced on this old stuff if you have any other questions contact me at: and good luck.

What are the tightening torques of all clutch plate pressure plate flywheel bolts of 2279cc slant engine vauxhalls

I have some original manuals for the model somewhere and the Kent-Moore service tool for adjusting the valve clearances. There isn't much information in my general data book but the flywheel bolts are 66 Nm.

The clutch cover bolts do have a torque value but I don't have it to hand and have never used it or heard of anyone using it. Good sense will suffice.
The important thing is to tighten the cover bolts a little at a time evenly until tension is felt and then it is sufficient to "knip" them a little further. There should be a spring washer under each cover bolt head and it is important they and the bolts are all identical

How to set up a new clutch

There is no setting the tension on the springs if the clutch has 4-6 springs as most do. The bolts that hold the clutch springs in tighten all the way down until they are snug (I would say about 100 inch-lbs max for each bolt torque.

Need instructions on how to change my clutch on my 97 roadking

All you have to do is drain and pull the primary cover. Now, I can't remember whether the '97 clutch had the bolts that hold it together or the snap ring. If it has the six bolts holding the clutch spring in, simply take the bolts out and your clutch assembly comes apart. You can change the fiber plates and the spring plate in the middle. If your clutch is held together with a snap ring, you'll need a special tool to disassemble the clutch. You can replace the friction plates, steel plates and the spring plate without taking the entire clutch off the mainshaft with either clutch.

Good Luck

What is the torque for the bolts that hold the clutch spring plate reduced effort clutch spring on a 2003 FLSTIC

I've never really torqued these bolts and I've replaced plenty of the diaphragm springs. Usually I put stronger springs in the clutch since I'm building up the horsepower of the engines. I put a drop of Loctite 242 (med, strength blue) and tighten the bolts to about 25-30 foot pounds. Check the standard torque for a grade five bolt of the size that are in the clutch.
