Just finishing up the refresh on the 727 for my Cuda. I noticed the 10 VB mounting bolts have done a bit of a number on the bottom of the aluminum valve body. I believe those bolts do not use washers originally - any reason for that? The pan is currently loose fitted on the case so I need to remove it to see for sure. I am wondering if it would be a good idea to put flat washers under those to protect the aluminum from further damage - and maybe loctite the bolts in that case.
