"... So the socket head c'screws get checked every oil change."
I've used blue threadlocker on the screws for over 100K miles without
any loosening (the screws /could/ come loose between oil changes). Same
with shock bolts (though I usually have them out for some other reason
every 50K or so). Screws and threads should be damn clean before
'gluing' them in.
Happened to read an article about the development of the Chevy Small
Block. One of its features was few, if any, external oil passages.
