2002 Roush 360R #071 Build Thread

If I remember correctly the 360R has the Roush lightweight flywheel.

That's what I thought too. My friend told me that it doesn't... but I don't know how to tell personally. He said it's a stock steel flywheel by taking off the cover.

Got my clutch ordered. Went with the Spec Stage 2 and a Ford TOB and a Ford Pivot Bearing. Just to update.

So what do you guys think? Don't remove the flywheel at all assuming it looks okay, Re-use the flywheel bolts or spend the money on an ARP flywheel bolt set? This could be a stupid question.

Well, I purchased the bolts. No reason to skimp on the installation now. I will have time this weekend to pill the Trans and see if I really need a flywheel or not.

So, the third starter bolt is now rounded off. These are such a pain to get to. What is the best way to get the bolt off now that the head is rounded? The socket will spin when pressure is applied.

You could try a twist off socket if you have room to get in there with it. https://www.amazon.com/Access-Tools-.../dp/B006WB4I5E

It's gonna be pretty tough to get a socket like that up there but it's worth a shot. I'd assume you're talking about the third bolt that nobody can see?

Yeah it isn't going to be easy. I'm coming at it from the front and basically made a 3 foot extension. But yes that is definitely the bolt causing all the trouble.

So it was a pain in the ***, but I managed to get mine out using a mid length 13mm socket (1/4drive) and about 4" of extensions. It out the ratchet at just the perfect point to break it loose.

Hopefully I can get that last one out. I doubt I'll be putting it back in if I can manage to get it out haha.

Haha. You're completely correct there. I'll see if I can't get it out this afternoon with that special socket

It turns out that the sockets didn't work and maybe rounded it off more. I'm thinking my only option is to just snap off the starter and hope that it doesn't break the block because the starter is aluminum. I don't like this option.

What if you undid your motor mount and raised up the engine? That might give you more room and a chance to get a look at it. Unfortunately those sockets need tapped on with a hammer to be effective.

Right now I am not looking forward to ever removing the starter on my car. The sad part is that it must come off in order to change the clutch.

I am hoping you find an answer to this that doesn't include unboltibg the maifolds and removing the engine and tranny.

We have some of these issues. This might be an inconvenience, just letting you know. We usually weld a nut on the stripped head, then get a socket that fits and done. Might have to go to a shop that has welder if you don't have one. Again, might be an inconvenience but worth a shot.


If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself.

Leave it to Recon for the creative answer.

In want a video of the welding.

Is there any way to drill a hole in the bolt head and then use an easy out? I am asking because I have no idea. I just know you are in a tight spot with a long extension. I am trying my best to imagine your fight

If it were possible to fit a welder up to that bolt then he wouldn't be having to ouch difficulty getting something onto the bolt.

OP are you doing this with the midpipe installed?

You might need to pull the exhaust manifold off to give you some more space.

Can you take the mid pipe off without removing the starter?

I actually do have a welder and contemplating doing that but still wasn't sure if I would be able to get it on there well enough to get it off. The midpipe is already off the car. Thank you guys for the replys. Just to let you know this bolt FINALLY came out soon after making my cry for help on here. Dang that was a fricken ordeal. I'm glad that it's out now and I'll begin pulling the transmission soon! Thanks again for helping me out guys. BTW, I didn't do anything special it just finally came out with enough messing with it. Wow. What a ridiculous job that was.
