Does anyone have any tips on keeping the muffler mounted tightly. I have a Hatori muffler attached to an OS 32. The hex screws that hold the muffler on keep vibrating loose . I've tried loctite as well as orange silicone. These seem to prolong it but not prevent it.

Anyone else have this problem??

Thanks guys,
Mike

When you get everything good and hot then tighten the bolts.

Works like a champ

Nope, no locktite.

Another thing I have seen that works really well is to install longer screws and use locknuts on the back.

Just giving you some options

I drilled mine out to the same size my 91 uses, then put longer bolts in. I run it up get it hot and tighten it up works fine.
