The new hardware was installed using removable threadlocker on all the bolts. Notice that the edge of the flat washer has been ground for clearance around a weld. If the flat washer does not seat correctly, the torque tension relationship will be askew. Threadlockers lubricate the fastener and reduce friction. Wet torque values should be used.
