You can get Locktite Quicktape-249 which is a nicer way to go.  You apply it
like the way that Teflon tape is applied to plumbing threads.  If I remember
it is Blue.

You just pre-apply it to the bolts, much better and more convenient if
working with the underside of the rotator bolting upside down through the
rotator plate.

I used this stuff and no problems.

Yup, I'll go with Loctite (instead of anti-seize) and Nord-Lock lockwashers.
I'd also go with a bolt head securing system, but I'm not about to drill
bolt heads and I don't see M8 bolts being available with drilled heads.

I've purchased several lengths of M8 bolts in 5mm increments and will use
the longest bolts that will fit.

Thanks for all the helpful responses!!!
