FSM states that you shouldn't re-use the flywheel bolts.

I'll assume it's due to the large torque applied to them when originally installed.

Thank you for the great writeup! this gives me courage to tackle my next clutch job! Only problem for me would be finding that clutch alignment tool, not available where I live, I may just order one and keep it for later.

I thought I saw that somewhere, but almost every wright up I see appears to re-use the old one's? Does anyone know where to get replacements? Dealer?

Fernando: The Alignment tool typically comes with a new Clutch kit.

I re-used mine. Lazy.... They look like specialty bolts nontheless. So I'd assume you'd need to go to the dealer or similar joint to aquire them.

I see the Mopar flywheel bolts go for like $4 each. Should have bought these, I guess.
