Rule of thumb is to replace the flywheel bolts. I would consider changing the rear main seal while you have the transmission out. Also replace the the wave washers and snap rings while you are in there as they aren't that expensive to replace. Be sure to get a pilot bearing removal tool because without it, it'll be nearly impossible to get it out.

The manual says for you to replace the flywheel bolts.When i did mine,i change out the pilot bearing,throw out bearing and all the washers and clips and i only had 35k on my 98.I was going to also change the clutch bolts but i use loctite,the blue one.

No tool needed for the Pilot bearing. Fill the hole behind it with grease, then tap a tight fitting bolt into the hole. The grease will act as a hydraulic, bearing comes right out. Works everytime.

The flywheel bolts can be re-used one time safely. If you are not sure how many times they have been removed then I would replace them. The cover bolts don't need to be replaced, but the washers often deform when retightening. The cover bolts are super cheap, so you might as well order them. Also, when a clutch is worn out and in need of replacement the pilot and throw out bearing should always be replaced. And of course, since your in there you might as well replace the rear main seal.

Also, dre99gsx's tip works beautifully if you don't have the proper tool to remove the pilot bearing. Sometimes after you tap the bolt in there a little you have to pull it out and add more grease then put the bolt in there and hammer it again. Be sure to clean out the grease after the Pilot bearing is out.
