 Absolutely true. I went to my favorite local _independent_ garage and copied
 the appropriate pages from their set of Bentley manuals for the 200. Now I
 understand what Phil meant, etc. All MC engine owners should take note.

Tidbit # 2 for you clutch types in "McBentley"

30.8   016 All Wheel Drive:
*  Shows hex bolt torque PP to FW specs of 55 ft/lbs with shoulder 74ft/lbs
*  Further on this page shows torque spec of FW attaching @ 18ft/lbs

The following should be the CORRECTION:
One can reference 30.2   5spd 016:
*  Shows hex bolt torque specs PP to FW of 18 ft/lbs
*  FW attaching bolts should read 55ft/lbs with shoulder 74ft/lbs without

Mark up your Bentleys gentlemen, this is a major NO NO.  Only one thing worse
than doing a Quattro Clutch once that I can think of...  Thankfully,
"reasonableness of torque" thinking prevented a btdt on this one.
