Figured I would post up a mini procedure..

Clutch Installation video:
2000 Honda Civic Si 1.6L Clutch Install - YouTube

My flywheel installation opertation.


First you must tap in the pilot bearing into the flywheel. This was almost perfect in size.


Then, you should wipe off all oil, (And make sure the crank end is clean, especially the threads.. I learned the hard way by having to re-torque the bolts)

Lining up the flywheel on the crank was tough (for me, idk), the bolts wont be torqued correctly if there is too much stress on them. But it might be easier if the holding pin was used, I didn't have one though.

Then after hand threading the bolts all the way, grab a small wrench, a flywheel bolt and a tranny bell housing bolt. Heres the set up:

Stopped the flywheel from rotating perfectly!

After that torque it down in 2 steps; first 43ft-lbs in a the criss-cross pattern, and then to 87ft-lbs. Clean friction surface and install clutch!

Make sure to clean all old threads of any loctite or dirt before assembly.
Also don't forget to put red loctite on the bolts!
(I forgot to mention that)

NOTICE FOR ALL:

lock-tite is completely up to you. Back in my early Honda days a bunch of people recommended it.

But now I use the OEM method of just oiling up the bolt threads.

Clean off the excess oil with brake clean after.
