While we all agree that the bolts originally did not have lockwashers, the use of lockwashers should not have any affect on whether it will leak or not, ...providing everything is within specification.

Think about it, if the gasket mating surfaces are truly flat and parallel, -and if the threads are the proper size, the 600 wt. lube will not penetrate the threads nor the flange area.
