Intake manifold bolts loosening... solution?

Just curious. I find myself having to snug down all of the intake/exaughst manifold bolts at least once every 3 weeks. Is there some other type of bolt that can be used in place of the OEM ones that will hold torque a little bit better? I've spoken to a lot of YJ/CJ owners who have this same issue. Any suggestions?

Have your tried loc-tite or any other type of threadlocker?

I was thinking the same thing. After an initial torque and a couple times after some run in time try some <font color="red">RED locktite</font color>. That stuff is TOUGH.

I'll agree with the Loc-tite solution. My old Toyota used to do the same thing and Loc-tite cured it. Luckily I haven't had the same problem on my CJ.

Just threw the red loc-tite on. I'll let you know in 2 weeks if I have to snug 'em down again. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
