Hi Ted:

In order to head off any such calamity with my rotor, I
had the bolts drilled for safety wire and then wired them
together as is the practice on racing cars, boats and planes
or any other place where vibration can cause fasteners to
come loose.  The easier way to achieve this is by using 
one of the commonly available thread locking compounds.
