Yes, there is a torque specification. But first I hope your replacing the whole clutch assembly except the flywheel. It's best to have the flywheel resurfaced at this point but if its not too bad you could reinstall the new clutch assembly without. Run you finger nail across the friction surface and if any of the groove(s) cause you fingernail to snag it would be a good idea to have the flywheel resurfaced. Also, the input shaft pilot bushing/bearing of the transmission (that's located on the flywheel, dead center) it is a good preventive measure to replace this bushing/bearing. Most clutch kit will include this with the kit, as well as, a throw out bearing.
Clutch plate Installation procedure
Coat the spline on the clutch dish with a multipurpose grease (thin coat you don't want any of this to get on the clutch)
Install the spline tool into the clutch spline and line up pressure plate. Install all the pressure plate bolts by hand and torque to 11lb ft if you have a hydraulic clutch type or 13lb ft if you have the cable clutch type (let me know if you have the cable type clutch because you'll probably need to adjust it after reinstalling the transmission). Tighten all the pressure plate bolts in a star pattern doing this evenly compress the finger springs on the pressure plate. For example, tighten pressure plate bolts in star pattern to 5lb ft first then tighten again in a star pattern to the final torque. Doing this while the alignment clutch spine tool is installed will tighten the pressure plate evenly and makes reinstalling the transmission much easier.
Hope this answered your question and good luck
