Now that the holidays are over, I can get back to some serious work; reinstalling the head on the Jag
As discussed some weeks ago, I have drained the coolant and blown out the head female thread where the studs screw into the block. And I will grease the end of the studs before installing them.
However, there is one issue that I am still not comfortable with. Some of the studs are still “loose” after tightening them as much as possible. By “loose” I mean that I can move the studs in a circular motion, down to the bottom the block, even though they are as tight as possible. Stud four is the loosest, studs three and five, less so, Studs one, two and six are tight.
I was wondering what I could or should do? Maybe some low strength loc-tite on the block threads.
