View Full Version : Flywheel and Clutch Bolt Torque
08-30-2007, 11:38 AM
I am getting ready to replace the clutch and hydraulic cylinders on my 2000 Ranger. It has the 4.0L engine and a M50D-R1 tranny. Could anyone provide my with the torque values for the "flywheel to crank bolts" and the "clutch pressure plate to flywheel bolts"? Please accept my thanks in advance. -Roger

according to haynes with the 4.0L
flywheel to crank tighten to 10 ft-lbs in an alternating pattern then to 50-55 ft-lbs in a cross pattern and use locktite.
pressure plate to flywheel 15-24 ft-lbs in an alternating pattern and work all the bolts down a little at a time until the pressure plate is all the way down and then torque them.

TireIron, Many thanks -- I'm just in the process of getting all my bits and pieces together for the clutch replacement. Looks like I need to shop for some loctite.
And, to be honest, a Haynes manual.
If for nothing more than the torque specs.

huh....people torque those eh...
i always just tighten them down "pretty tight" with a 1/2 :D
So, how many "baps" on the 1/2 inch impact for the flywheel bolts? :D
