Clutch basket screw torque was created by Burrage

Hi, just cleaned up 1973 DT3 clutch. Can anyone confirm the torque for the spring screws. I have found the torque table in the Service Manual, so I just apply the torque for the screw diameter or is there a unique value for clutch spring,? Cheers

Whatever the manual says is how it should be & spring tension doesn't come into it. Ok the screw winds the spring in but then comes to a stop on the post its threaded into & that's what your torquing against. You'll be good, don't worry. Just had a look at the end of the manual online & says 7 foot pounds or 90 inch pounds for 6mm so should be good. Shame on me but i just do them up tight--no torquing.
I'll just add that early DT1's had 5mm threads on those screws & stretched & broke easily. But i'm sure by DT3 those have long gone than goodness.
