flywheel removal and installation

what is the correct torque spec for the bolts holding the flywheel to the crankshaft? my haynes manual gives some crazy 60 degree turn ratio.

The 60 degree thing isn't hard. Once you've reached the book torque spec, you can mark where 2 adjacent corners on each bolt point to on the flywheel. Since the bolt head has 6 corners, each corner represents 60 degrees. Tighten to specs, then go another 60 degrees. My Haynes manual shows 50 ft-lbs all the way around and then the additional 60 degree turn on the 4 cylinder motor.
