Stephen should know...but I've heard that even the ones with the shoulder on them have come loose...they're really no big deal UNLESS they end up being the ones under the heat exchanger if you have an exchanger that covers them.

someone even posted a method for locking them in by drilling the lip and putting wire thru it like a sort of cotter key and wound it around a stationary post...dunno...these have been the most recurrent PIA for me. I'm hoping these mercedes grub screws do the trick. The indy i go to swears by them....and he mostly works on the turbos. Hope springs eternal....
