Hey guys , somhow my flywheel bolts holding the clutch snapped in half every single one. Could anybody supply the parts number for the bolts if they still make them I’ve looked around couldent fine. Another question is what the clutch pack bolts on to is that a flex plate or flywheel and the parts number for that? Sombody told my a flywheel but they just don’t look right

Any help is appreciated

Even on the manual transmission cars it's referred to as a flex plate. The modular clutch setup bolts to it. If you need 4 bolts I can hook you up.

You're not supposed to use any thread locker on them. But it's not going to hurt anything to use some. Send me a PM if you want the set I have, or you can order the set that Dusty was nice enough to drop a link for. :)

Interesting. I don't recall mine having any on them. They seem to be holding up fine with being torqued to the proper specs. Thread locker or not I imagine the OP's bolts weren't properly torqued.

ive only seen them loosen on automatics. but i'm sure your right, the torque wasn't correct.

the only things i really use thread locker on are the flexplate bolts on a modular, red on the bolts to the crank and blue on the other 4. if its a regular clutch i use red for the crank bolts and friction surface bolts on the aluminum flywheels, blue on the pressure plate bolts.
