So I'm finally getting around to installing a T5 into my 65 6 cylinder. I'm installing a new small OD "dog dish" fly-wheel and I'm looking for torque specs and a little advice on the procedure. I've checked the shop manual and cannot find the spec to use. Also, do I sneak up on it or just go for it all at once? Do I use a thread locker? Thread sealer? Which one? Does it change the torque spec? I know I have to alternate bolts around the circle.

As you can guess, this is the most involved project I've done to date and I really want to get it right.

Any help or advice is very much appreciated.

Thanks, I thought I read somewhere that those bolts needed a sealant. I can't find the torque spec in my shop manual, seems like Ford never expected them to be removed.
