Clutch Installation

I am going to be putting a new clutch in my car this weekend. What are the torque rating for the pressure plate or does it really matter.

Also, and tid bits of advice to look out for.

Thanks for the input.

And yes, the torque matters a LOT. Tighten in stages in a cross pattern. Have fun!

Thanks for the info. GOt a little behind as I ran into a few other issues which I need to address. Freeze plug leaking so I am going to install all three on the back of the motor while I am there. I also need to put a new flywheel on. GOt it ordered but won't have it until next week.

I have been buying most of my stuff from Ames. Seem to be competitive and good parts. GOt any comments?

Ames and Year One have always "done me right". Reputable, and good quality stuff.

Ames, Year One, and Performance Years are all pretty good. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Paddock (they are out of CA), they are terrible. They seriously can't do anything right.
