No, I'm saying that loctite isn't going to affect the clamping force of the bolts across the face of the stem. Technically, it could give you a false reading on your torque wrench, but if they are properly tightened, they shouldn't loosen up. The OP seems to have an issue with clamping area, not the possibility of bolts backing out.
