Re: Why no lock-washers?

Boy, I sure know what you mean!

I have found that the harder the split lock washer (Grade 8 for example), the faster it looses its spring and easier it is to break.

That's true... split lock washers tend to break, then fall off, especially on reciprocating or vibrating parts.

Re: Why no lock-washers?

If you need a solution to exhaust manifold nuts backing off, you could use interference-fit brass nuts. This was a fairly common item and solution in years gone by. They would have cost a few cents...

Heat cycling along with vibration will harden the lock washers, then they will become brittle, and then break.
