    No matter how much I tighten my choke tubes in my Kolar (TC) they still seem to come loose.

    Any good ideas as to how to keep this from happening?

    Thanks,

    Doc

    I use the anti-seize grease from my MEC press but any automotive anti-seize grease will work. Auto parts places sell it.

    Barrels with choke tubes made on Mondays usually cause trouble by coming loose.
