View Full Version : What is the torque spec for pressure plate to flywheel bolts?

09-12-2014, 04:09 AM
I'm looking in my factory manual but have not yet found it. I have bolted the new clutch and pressure plate to my flywheel and tightened it all finger tight for now.

The car, well, the set up is in my Falcon but it is a 1970 Maverick 200 ci inline six cylinder with a 3 speed top loader behind it, the big heavy transmission, so the torque specs may be same as that for the '64 V8 Falcon with 3 speed top loader.

Does anybody know what torque spec I tighten those six bolts that hold the pressure plate to the flywheel?

Thank you

My manual specs for 200ci: 23 - 28 ft.lbs.

My manual specs for 200ci: 23 - 28 ft.lbs.

Is that flexplate to crank or converter to flexplate? That spec seems small.

The book says: Clutch Pressure Plate - 23 - 28 lbs.
