Its just the same type going back in, for simplicity. I think I posted some pics of our (mainly the Touring_Bros) efforts in that area a bit further up the thread (if you really want to see what a 1.0 3 banger looks like !)

The new flywheel bolts arrived for the Corsa last week so I tonight I fitted the flywheel.

I had a pants_critical moment when the flywheel bolt holes didnt line up with the crankshaft, remember this was an automatic engine, but a quick quarter turn made me realise that its a weird pattern that only has 1 correct position.

I had to be careful as the tightening sequence was a bit 'procedural', as some of you might know. I fitted them all hand tight first, but still loose enough that I could determine which ones were left to to. I took each one back out in turn, applied a generous application of superglue and torqued them uo to the specified 35nm plus 39 degrees.

The new clutch plate looks like it has a much larger surface area than the old one but, fuck it, boshed it all up, centralised the disk and tightened it up.

Have two pictures.

Is that a recommended step, or is it bodgers thread lock? I've never heard of using superglue before.

It's got nothing to do with Vorsprung durch technique, you know?

I have read that it is an acceptable alternative.

Has the price of thread lock gone dramatically up?

Never used it on cars, but I've used superglue as thread lock on my model aircraft. Worked fine. Just a lot harder to remove the fixings later than proper blue threadlocker. Also isn't as temperature resistant. Like 130C or something.
