I've only got one plate/bgb bolt that likes to continually work itself loose. It's the one that holds the drive belt guide. I don't know why, but going through that guide negates the effectiveness of the lock washer. So, I had to put a little loctite on it.

My 716H had loose bolts when I first put it together. Guess I didn't check them. For a while, I thought that a Sunstrand was the roughest starting transmission I had ever seen. Since I have tightened the bolts, it works very nicely. LOL
