There are a few threads on clutch related torques but the clutch cover bolt seems like it could be 3 different covers to me. I just removed the primary spring and would like to have the correct torques.
What is the proper term for the cover that holds the primary spring down with 8 Allen bolts?
What about this cage with 2 nuts and 2 bolts?

And finally the plastic cover that covers the entire assembly and keeps it water tight?

Maybe I’m a moron but pictures are worth a thousand words.

This should help you find all the torque specs you need.

The plastic cover is 15 ft lb. 80 in lb (corrected). I twisted one of the bolts off because I read the wrong torque value for the wrong cover. Thankfully, the rest of them backed out and are OK. I'm still going to replace them all just in case.

Clutch cover torque is 80 inch lbs, that equals about 6.7 foot lbs. Thats why the bolt snapped

To the OP. On your first picture with the clutch cover allen head bolts=11 foot lbs. On the second picture with the clutch cover nuts=15 foot lbs.
The third picture is the converter cover bolts=80 inch lbs. It appears that it is a common mistake to confuse the clutch cover(inner aluminum cover which contains the primary spring) with the converter cover(the big plastic cover that covers the entire belt and pulley assembly).

Perfect, thank you!

All i do is just Snug them up right good and let it go i have not had any kind of problem with them coming losses or anything and we ride in some really rough places around in Tennessee hills ........and also i took out primary spring and cut 2 links off it and put a badass belt on it .......that lowered my RPM and boosted up my speed to 70mpr and i am running stock with NO tunes
