I'll second Frank. I use Anti Seize (or Loctite in a few spots) on just about all threaded fasteners. A properly torqued - note use of the word 'torqued' - fastener won't come loose. Don't just slop Anti Seize everywhere, just on the threads please. Since torque values on a Corvair are generally a range, I use the lower values.

If they pass this test, then I put the head on, Anti-Seize the threads and torque to 30-33 ft-lbs depending on year.
