    motor mount bolts

    quick question and ive searched with no prevail. are motor mount bolts put back in with loctite or antisieze? When i pulled them out there was an orange looking powdery residue on them. Wondering what to put on them to put them back in? Also, header bolts, antiseize or locktite?

    Header bolts = Antiseize
    You want to be careful when using locktite on an alum. Block. Personaly i never use locktite on the motor mounts, i would use just a dab of antiseize. and torque them to spec.
