      This is what the Haynes Manual says for the V-6 enigine on torque for the Flywheel/Driveplate. This is the way it is written in the Haynes manual:

      Flywheel bolts:
      Step 1: 120 inch lbs
      Step 2: 52 ft lbs

      Driveplate Bolts:
      Step 1: 115 inch lbs
      Step 2: 37 ft Lbs
      Step 3: Tighten an additional 90 degrees

      If you aren't sure about what you are doing down there, I would suggest you get a Haynes manual for your vehicle (around $25), because there appears to be a Flywheel bolt tightening sequence you need to follow and you need to make markings on the flywheel/driveplate and crankshaft, to ensure proper alignment during reinstallation. Can't help you on the wrench part of your question. Good luck! BTW, my Haynes Manual states it is for 2002-2010 Explorers or Mountaineers, the manual doesn't specify if it for "Explorer Sports" like yours and I do not know if the specs I gave you from it are the same for your vehicle. You might want to check into that before you do anything.
