Just a FYI..... mine were still tight but i took them out and loctited them anyway
there was no sign of threadlocker on any of them.
these are great running engines and i know several people are running them.... Just hate for someone to lose a plane for lack of some threadlock.
Hhmm good tip, I'll have to check mine tomorrow. Last week mine flamed out and got everything down in time and that will be something to check.
