ok thats what i figured, nowhere in SA has that damn bit... and snap-on/matco/cornwell people are near to impossible to get ahold of. guess i have to order online.

you're best bet is to order online. get a t50plus and t55 plus.

the new bolts from nissan are t55plus while the ones on your car are t50 plus. that's the problem I ran into when I changed the flywheel on my '02

Cool. If you're installing an aluminum flywheel tq it down in steps

When I did mine I first tq'd the bolts to 25ft-lbs, then 55, then the final value specified in the fsm. When you do the last step apply the locktite.

FSM on my laptop right next to me, a pretty good writeup too for any curveballs that might get thrown at me. As far as the torque proceedure for the flywheel im planning on doing that in a star pattern snugging it down in torque steps like babygtr suggested.

I did mine with the T50 its a bit loose and it can strip but i had no problem on any of my bolts. Just don't use a Airgun on it. I had a really hard time finding the TP50 as well.

forgot to mention. after each step, fully loosen, then apply the torque.

for instance

torque to 25, then fully loosen, then tighten to 50, then fully loosen, then apply final torque

why all the way loose? would seem counterproductive
