Read your post and have been trying that without heat for hours, with Loctite on those threads its not gonna back out. im gonna have to drill it with a small bit, follow up with a bigger, on so on until it decides to break loose. I dont wanna destroy the threads in the engine though.

Anyone ever just use bolts instead of the stud/nut combo? I think as long as I use loctite they shouldnt back out at all.
