I double nutted a motor that had this problem and it solved it. You might also try nylock nuts. As a last resort, you can make a locking nut by SLIGHTLY crushing a regular nut with visegrips to make it harder to turn. Be careful, it only takes a very small amount and too much will strip the stud instead of threading on.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
