23 ft lbs for the pressure plate bolts? Is that the RST specs or Fords? I thought Fords was 33, but can't recall.

Even after seeing it installed, I still don't understand how it works. Freaking magic clutch!

moose, mcleod gives a 20-25 ft/lbs range
for the pressure plate bolts, i chose 23.

it really is a magic clutch lol

basically everything spins with the flywheel,
except for the 2 clutch disks, that are fixed to the
transmission input shaft.

you may have been joking, so i offer the
explanation for those who might really be
wondering how it all works

how's it going tooslow

i can't be much help in the bleeding department, when
i did my clutch i kept the car up on the jacks for
another week while i did some other mods. each
night i would just go out and pump the pedal about
20 times, slowly. by the time i was ready to take the
car out, the clutch felt perfect and has been ever
since.

post up a new thread asking for clutch bleeding tips, there
are two common ways, to do it......
