View Full Version : (KA) flywheel and clutch install

02-10-2003, 04:39 PM
Are the flywheel bolts sealed with any type of thread sealer like loctight? Is heat required to remove the bolts?

Also, is it recommended to use new OEM flywheel bolts when replacing the flywheel? Are there any other parts besides a clutch kit and the flywheel I will need? I've done a clutch and flywheel job on a FWD Toyota, not on my 240 yet though.

No, although you will need an impact or 18" breaker bar, as well as something to keep the flywheel in place when you break the bolts loose (so you turn the bolt, not the flywheel)

Yes (by Nissan) but many have reused the bolts

throwout bearing and pilot bushing should be included in clutch kit, otherwise you will need those.
