Honda GX160 rod bolts

Hi:

When I re-assembled my engine last year, I torqued the connecting rod bolts per spec, but I've always worried that they could back out over time. Many other engines I've repaired over the years have had some type of rod plate with retainer tabs or wire to prevent this from occurring. Should I be concerned, or is there something else(such as anti-sieze)that I should have done.


Thanks,

Bob

No, some engines use flange bolts that lock well enough when torqued, and some like older briggs used the locking plate you mentioned. You are fine.
