No doubt about that, that's what I get for buying used parts, competition clutch time!

Well I opened took off the transmission tonight and I found that all of the pressure plate bolts were loose... now I know what your thinking, this dumb ass didn't torque them down... but I did.

Could I have over torqued them?? Also... should I just look into a new flywheel if the bolts were stripped ?? I still have my stock one lying around, I could just resurface and get new bolts... same PP and disc has fresh paddin... thoughts ?

If not I'm just going to dish out another 300 for some new PP and disk which I rather not. When I have a fine 6 puck here

What is more likely to strip , the bolt it self or the fly wheel? I've honestly never encountered this problem in my life.

Bolts look fine, no shavings, i read trying loctite red works

no loctite needed, only tq'd to 19 ft/lbs. The PP holds the bolts in tension.

flywheel bolts, those need loctite if using an alum. flywheel.

I use loctite on any and all flywheel/flexplate bolts to crank.

one or two drops, nothing more. make sure the loctite specifies hand tool removable to save headache. dont loctite anything into threads of aluminum, that requires a special loctite that doesnt harden up. the T5 horrors..Paul!
