I was told by an engine builder to put a tiny amount of anti-sieze on the flange of the bolt head, that contacts the face of the cam gear. That makes it easy to break it free when you want to take them off. We all know how hard it is to break these loose.

I did it on my cam bolts and torqued them to 60 ft lbs. All I had was the torque to angle spec in the manual and the builder said he has torqued them all to 55 ft. lbs for years and has never had one come loose, so I just added 5ft lbs to that.

Food for thought

Glad they worked well for you! They really make it much easier to break those stubborn bolts loose.
