T-Series MGTF Flywheel and Pressure Plate Torque???

I have a 1955 MGTF 1500 that I am doing a Moss 5 speed conversion on so while it was down I removed the flywheel to get it resurfaced and a new ring gear installed. I just went to my workshop manual and it does not have torque specs for the Flywheel and Pressure Plate installation. Does anyone know the torque specs for both?

Also the workshop manual talks about a locking wire on the flywheel bolts. When I removed my flywheel there are holes in the bolt heads for a locking wire but none was installed when I removed them. I also looked it up in the Moss catalog and they do not show a locking wire so here is my question, is the locking wire really needed and if so what do I use as the wire?

Thanks,

The locking wire you are speaking of is the same as aircraft safety wire. A good policy is, if a factory bolt has holes for safety wire, I would advise using it. Even though modern technology has provided us with various thread lockers and fasteners, for me, it would be peace of mind if nothing else. Plus, using the proper wire, it only takes a couple of minutes to do. JMHO
