Has anybody had this recurring problem of exhaust manifold studs and or nuts loosing up?

I have to retorque my almost monthly.

Any suggestions???


TIA

Paul,
This is just a Idea. first replace all
the stud with a new one's. Before you install
it, try installing one torque the nut.(new also)and see if you have enough stud end sticking
out pass the nut. If you do,drill a hole on the stud and place cotter pin or equivalent
preferably one that dont rust.This is to prevent the nut from backing out completely. And on the
head side of the stud apply RED locktite
before you install it. if you try this,I would
suggest you try it on one first and see if it
hold before you do the rest. I have never
tried this my self but if the problem ever
happen to me I will go this direction. What
hell if everything else fail it might be
worth trying. good luck
RogerJ
