As I'm about to start assembling my MK1 engine, and as my previous thread seems to have died, I thought I'd start another. What big end nuts do you all use when assembling your square four engines? Do you use the new but rather thin nuts as now supplied by Drags that only use half the available thread, or do you reuse the Aerotight type of nuts that Drags used to supply in the past but no longer, but which do cover all the thread, although you would have to tap down the locking tongues to restore the locking function, or do you use something else entirely?
The makers of the Aerotight nuts say that they can be reused several times before being discarded, or alternatively I can obtain new Aerotight nuts, but only in 18/8 (A2 / 304) stainless steel.
So what do you all use when assembling your 4G big ends, and what would you advise me to use? Any advice would be much appreciated.
Many thanks, John.
