Flywheel Bolts

When I recently installed a new clutch set up in my Wagon I used ARP flywheel bolts.

After I got the Wagon all back together I realized the bolts did come with instructions which state do not use lock washers with these flywheel bolts.

You can already guess from my writing this post, I did.

A call to ARP, their tech suggested I pull the trans, and clutch back out to remove these lock washers I used.

Before I go to all this trouble, can someone tell me if this is nessessary?

I know I don't want the flywheel working loose some day when it feels like it, and coming up through the windshield of my Wagon.

Don't worry about it. Lock washers are designed to dig into the metal. If you have it apart, remove them but otherwise don't worry.

Only concern would be if the bolt length was sized for no lock washers and you used lock washers you may not be getting enough thread engagement.

I was concerned about the ARP bolts being too long and interfering with the back of the block?

I laid under the engine and watched as I tightened a couple of the bolts.

The ARP tech said to cut the bolts if they are indeed too long, just don't use heat as a method of cutting them.

When I installed a couple of the bolts watching the depth, I'm sure they went in the crank a fair amount.
