Default Re: Why no lock-washers?

OK, guys. I agree with the probable leakage problem on head bolts due to lockwashers. I agree with the fact that lockwashers become brittle and break.

However, a bell or compression washer wouldn’t allow leakage and sure wouldn’t break. My god, you could even put Permatex under them and really seal that head when that bell was torqued down. I think they would even look good under the nuts. They would sure look better than a double nut.

I’m not trying to be a wise-ass, but I really do think that there is a better way than just the nut.
