When installing my clutch/pressure plate assy, should I use lock washers, locktite, or both?? Coverting from an automatic tranny so I have all new parts, the clutch assy did not come with any mount bolts. I am assuming I should round up some grade 8 bolts for the deal, just not sure if I should measure to include lock washers, and if it's a good idea to put on some locktite while I'm there? Also, if anyone knows the correct locktite number, or code to use in this application if it should be included? TIA all.

IMO..

Pitch the lockwashers...
If a lockwasher breaks, you've got a loose bolt. Red loctite for steel, blue for aluminum...

IIRC, pressure plate bolts are application specific. Seems like they have a "step" right under bolt head which generic bolts won't have. ARP should have the correct bolts, I wouldn't chance anything else.
I use blue Loc-Tite on my pressure plate bolts.
