I am currently R&Ring the clutch on the wifes '05. The clutch was still grabbing great, however on the springs granaded on the disc.

It was a job, but only took me an hour and a half to pull the tranny.

My question is this.....

Beside the clutch, do I need to replace the flywheel bolts ??

Are they the one time use type, or can I reuse ??

Also, I couldn't find any aftermarket clutch besides a stock replacement....is that true ??

Thanks...

John

Also the center bush (22103-PNA-003). And yes, get new bolts of the proper grade, torqued to spec with a reliable wrench.

I wouldn't do all that work and not use Honda parts. Parts list here. (You didn't mention whether you have 2WD or 4WD; it makes it easier for others to help if you fill in your profile.)

make sure you use clutch alignment tool, if not you will grind going into gears.

flywheel bolts usually arent "stretch bolts" so torque them properly in a good sequence then recheck again...

clean the input shaft on the trans from old dusting, apply small amount of grease for release bearing to slide smooth... not too much though.

Yes....when I replace a clutch, I replace EVERYTHING (PP, Disc, TOB, and bushing)

I went with a complete clutch kit, which included an alignment tool.

It's a 4wd. Let me tell you, it was one of the easiest clutches I've done.

It does help to have a 2-post lift too !! :D

Anyway, I reused the stock FW bolts and used LockTite on them and the PP bolts.....and AntiSeize on everything else.

The only reason I asked about the flywheel bolts is I am building a '69 Stingray with a a 630HP Z06 LS7 and it uses "stretch" one time bolts.

Thanks guys....
