I have a 99 vw beetle tdi alh diesel engine, manual transmission. I am replacing my original dual mass flywheel with a single mass flywheel. The new bolts that came with the single mass flywheel/clutch kit have a coating, probably locktight??? What torque wrench setting do I use on the new bolts to bolt the flywheel to the crankshaft, I don't know if these new bolts are stretch bolts or not, the supplier of the new single mass flywheel couldn't tell me if they were stretch type bolts or not

How many bolts hold Mitsubishi 2.0 head on?The reason I ask is because there are 3 bolts in the middle of the head that are a different size than the other 12 bolts?Do these bolts need to come off to remove the head?Or is the head held down by the 12 bolts only?The repair book I have doesn't say anything about the 3 bolts in the middle.

There are only 10 head bolts on that engine. the 3 bolts your talking about, aren't bolts they are plugs and shouldn't be removed.\015\012 ... Mitsubishi Galant

1994 4runner, six cyl. putting rebuilt heads on, toyota head gaskets, new head bolts "tvs 10.9". Torqued bolts in pattern to 33 foot pounds. another 1/4 turn in the pattern. and into my next and final 1/4 turn (required by toyota book), 3 different bolts acted like they stripped. They still have torque to them(more than 33 foot pounds I checked) but it seems that they "gave way" going into the final turn. I can't imagine the bolts stripping, but they aren't from toyota. I did oil the bolts prior


Timing Tensioner Hi Again, Well I found out it's not a rod bearing going out, the timing tensioner bolt broke. Now my problem is, how do i get the rest of the bolt out? I bought a new tensioner and bolt to replace it, also a new water pump and timing belt. My husband drilled the old bolt and used an easy out, but the old bolt isn't budging, he sprayed it with ez blaster to try and loosen it but that didn't work either, sooo anyone got any other suggestions? Thanks a bunch for any help.

I fitted an induction kit to my Swift the other day, everything went fine apart from the final instruction was to put the 4 bolts that held the airbox in place back in their correct holes. I had 5 bolts and stupidly put the last one in the hole just to the right of the dipstick, being the wrong size the bolt head sheared and is now stuck in place. A friend tried drilling the bolt out but just made it worse. Is it possible to replace the part the bolt is stuck in? thanx much.

2002 Chevy Impala rear brakes in removing the brake caliper bolt / pins the hex head of the lower bolts on each wheel were rounded off and very tight to remove I purchased new bolts from the local auto parts store and notice that they are different (one has a turned down end with a neoprene sleeve the other is metal one diameter to the end).

6.5 Diesel Thermostat Housing Bolt Access: Gentlemen, I have marveled at the idiocy of the alternator bracket housing, cursed long and loud over the near psychosis of the water pump mounting, and have detoured into the perplexing case of the gigantic Torx bolt on the belt tensioner. I am now faced with the lower bolts on the dual thermostat housing. How, pray tell, does one remove these hidden treasures. I am but a simple shade tree novice, raised on the silly old 2 bolt thermostat housing.

Trying to install a starter for a 1966 thunderbird. I am unable to get the third bolt (at the top of starter) into the starter because of the lack of space. How can i revolve this issue? I have installed the started utilizing just the two bolts, however the vehicle will attempt to start but i hear a slight knocking sound, then it will not start anymore. Is it because the third bolt is not in place? I do have the other two bolts very tight and secure.
