    Fear Porn! M11 bolts are available, g--gle them, or dealer.Your buddy didn't get them from junyard when he got the bellhousing? Torque to yield really requires the tool for the bolt head-but as you noticed, hardly anyone does it that way. So far the bolts have survived 4-5 cycles. Most clean bolt and crank, and use locktite as the lube. An old beam style torque wrench helps on install being if max torque for that bolt ( not application) is say80 ft lbs when you are moving to angle don't exceed that.You are more likely to snap the bolt or pull the threads out of crank rather than them falling out from being loose as long as threads are clean and flywheel fits nice.
    What were your findings on Measuring throwout relationship? Hate to see problem continue when you were that far in it.

    Got it working. Really cannot say how. 3rd times a charm.

    Tested everything meticulously during assembly and worked fine when put together.

    Didn't really catch anything odd along the way.

    Thanks for advice. Threads on bolts were meticulously cleaned. Then they were lubricated with spray silicone grease, lastly placed loctite on end (towards head) of each bolt and toqued in. My buddy took off 900 mile return trip to his house. Got him there fine. We also heat cycled the engine about 5 times (turned on, let get to temp, then shut down and let cool off). My guess is the bolts are holding fine.

    I was primarily scared because previous time he reinstalled the bolts, I thought he might snap them. He was struggling immensely to get the 60 degree TTY with 3 foot breaker bar. This time they went in smoothly.
