Is it possible to over tighten a clutch and break it?

the flywheel bolts and the pressure plate bolts yes, clutch no
what is the down fall of over tightening the flywheel bolts and pressure plate bolts?
they break off, and you have to take it all apart and have them taken out.... can get expensive!
buy new bolts from ford, and use a RELIABLE tq wrench and some BLUE thread locker and youll be ok
Thank you for the advice I will drop the tranny and double check that tomorrow!
if they are in
dont mess with them!

its jsut reccomended to change them when you change clutch, if they are good, dont bother them

hope you used loctite!
