1997 mustang V6 clutch questions
So I bought my baby girl a car knowing that at least the TOB was toast. I pulled everything apart last weekend and the friction disc looks a little thin. The flywheel looks pretty good. I'm down to looking at the back of the engine block. Now I've got a couple questions;
The rear main does NOT appear to be leaking. Should I replace it as long as I'm there? Is it a pain?
The flywheel has two dowel pins and six bolts. Does it matter if the flywheel is 180 out from where it was? It's not externally balanced or something is it?
Is there really no return spring on a ford clutch? From what I've read they like to eat TOB's for breakfast. Maybe this is why? LOL
I plan on replacing the friction disc and pressure plate assmy along with the TOB and pilot bearing.
Are there any pointers for putting the thing back together before I start on it?
Anyone got a manual with torque specs? Please??????
Thanks a bunch.

If the rear main looks good I would leave it.
A 97 3.8 should be externally balanced so the flywheel must go on the same way...probably will only bolt on one way anyways. Make sure you have the flywheel resurfaced.
Flywheel 54-64 ft. lbs w/thread sealer
Pressure plate 20-28 ft. lbs.
