It seems the mounting bolts on my new engine tend to loosen. I have spring washers on most but not on the ones that are
too close to the web of the bracket ( there are eight bolts in total ). The engine is mounted on hard wood blocks. Should I
use Loctite ??.

Absolutely! Same happened to me. Loctite was the solution.

James Glen do Glenloch nuts which have a stainless insert as the locking system
