Last night I changed my stock springs and weights to the epi. my question is I didn't notice the allen lock screw in the center of the primary bolt and I used a battery impact to take it off. I put it back on and torqued it to specs then realized it was a center lock bolt. Should I loosen the center bolt and then the main bolt and retighten it then tighten the center lock bolt or you think it will be ok if I never touched the center bolt. Let me know thanks

I think the center is to keep the nut locked from over tightening more so I think u should be ok !

Seems to me that the center set screw needs to be removed and re-torque the primary nut. Then put the center screw back in. Doesn't seem possible to attain correct torque with a locking screw already installed.
I don't know that for certain but if it was me I'd do everything possible to make sure it's right. If it comes apart it will be expensive.

Good info there for sure. I was surprised there was no loctite on the tapered stud but there hasn't been any noise on clutch failure since last recall. I would guess 95% or more of any future clutch failures will be from incorrect installation.

Sent….let me know if you don't get it.

Does anyone know if there is a way to post a .PDF document on here? It would allow us to share documents much easier than converting to .JPEG...
