Can this Main Cap support work on the rear(flywheel) Main cap too ? I've purchased 1 of these for the center main cap, and I'm wondering if it will fit on the rear main cap too? The block is away at the machine shop so I can't just run out and look. if it does, I want to get it ordered...

This support can be used on the front main but pan modifications are required. The rear is not considered or recommended.

is there a certain torque spec for the center bolt, or just run it up snug?

There is not a specific torque spec for the support center bolt. Run it up until snug without overtightening.

The original center cap bolts had lock washers under the bolt heads. Should those lock washers be used with the bolts for the cap support?

Normally replacement main cap bolts come with hardened thru washers. Typically when using this support strap lock washers are not used.
