Loose bolts?
After having the timing belt done has anyone had the bolts work loose that go on the center cover where the motor mount bolts to?? They are 14mm i think.

Wonder if they were not torqued properly they would vibrate loose since i have the VF poly mount...??

Improper TQ.
Remember that ANY debris in the threads will alter TQ readings. This includes any use of oils, antisieze or thread lockers.
That being said, I've never TQ'd mine and never had an issue. Good-n-tight has worked for me.
