Novice queation re Flywheel bolts

Post by Prophead » Mon Aug 07, 2017 7:56 pm

Finally getting close to reinstalling the clutch. The flywheel is back from machining, been refaced, lightened (from 14kg to 10kg) and balanced

Question:- Can I re-use the bolts for the flywheel or do they have to be replaced? (they look fine)?

Same question for the cover plate bolts?

Well I've re-used them plenty of times. The only time I have changed them is if the heads are a bit mangled as they are bloody tight and if the head isn't 100% perfect you can't get the buggers out again!
