Good Morning to All:
     Have been getting the buggy engine back together and am puzzled by the procedure. I understand the reasoning for not tightening the studs into the case savers, (expansion). But, if I screw the studs into the case savers finger tight and back them off 1/2 to 3/4 turns, what is to stop them from tightening when installing the cylinder heads?
     Should I be using Loctite to help hold them in position? Have read about both ways.

Tom
