Im trying to finish my car this weekend, but Ford cant get these bolts for a couple days. So i was thinking of just getting bolts from a store. So far im coming up with M8x1.25 13mm bolts torque to yield bolts for the pressure plate. Is this correct? I also will need to know the flywheel bolts. Ive looked but only came up with the pressure plate bolts ive supplied. Thanks for your help! I want to drive her NOW!!! lol

Buy ARP's. Don't skimp.
er wait, are you talking the Flywheel bolts?
If yes, ARP only.
If you're talking pressure plate bolts,
bulk bolts will do just fine. IIRC your size is correct. Just be sure to buy a flange head bolt and either star washer or lock washer (and to add the thickness of the washer to your bolt). A little Loc-Tite isn't a bad idea either. TQ isn't that great on them, ~18ft/lbs IIRC, so things like grade 10 aren't needed. Grade 8 is just fine.

Where do you suggest buying them? Guess I have to wait another weekend... Part #'s would be cool!

Should be ARP# 251-2801 if I'm reading the catalog correct.
SVT threads are the same as the standard zetec crank. I verified this by using an old FW bolt from my zetec in my SVT crank.

Well, ordered those arp's... And they are the wrong ones. First problem is they are too short. Second problem is if they were the right size, you could never get a socket around it to tighten then... For now, I ordered some from Ford. I only plan on this setup for two more years, when I finally go turbo...
