Inquire via e-mail:
The cam/rocker arm oil spray bar bolts have a history of loosening on the m30 big-6 and the m70 V-12 BMW engines, causing reduced or loss of lubrication which leads to premature wear/failure of the cam lobes, rocker arms, valve stems. BMW issued a "fix" with a revised bolt with a patch of Tuflok® nylon thread locker applied to them but even when used and installed under the best conditions, they too can loosen on their own before the next valve clearance adjustment is due. Put your mind at ease and solve the problem once and for all by using banjo bolts with cross-drilled heads, and safety tie wire:
The bolt heads I provide will have a 0.052" hole cross-drilled thru them, with a generous chamfer at the hole edges to prevent wear on the wire.
