Makes an interesting point on exhaust pipes being loose due to hex screws coming undone and causing excessive heat and carbon build up which could lead to an engine failure. I have certainly noticed this on a fellow flyers engine so it is something to regularly check where a large proportion were loose (not too long after a major service).

Loctite 620 is pretty useless here and a good set of locking washers would be my choice!

On the same note, it may be worth running a survey to see how many of us find one or more loose exhaust screw on our checks and report back to forum or forward data for inclusion into a spreadsheet and statistical analysis.

The guy who owned that engine needs beating with a birch for allowing this to happen or he is deaf as a post not to hear it. No wonder Rod bleates on about owner maintenance when he gets engines in to service what look like that
