X2 to the last two posts.............

9-13 ft.lbs. is the spec, I would never go much over that, doubling up on the torque is simply asking for pulled threads since they are now worn.

Normally angle seat plugs get TIGHTER as they run, your loosening is probably a result of all the plug yanking you've done in the past. Those aluminum threads get a bit looser every time you go in there..................

Ted, went to your site and looked at the youtube on pass side mounts, the differences are not so much outside as inside, I've had several apart........I really hate that Anchor mount...............
