    Exclamation Need Help!!!!

    I have a Wieland 6-71 blower,inter-cooler,two demon 1050 carbs and a scoop. I am trying to find a way to "lock" the stud bolts to the manifold. I was thinking about having some special "star " or "hex" nuts made so you would need a special tool to take them off, almost like "wheel locks" This would prevent some turd from coming in the night with a wrench, take off 8 bolts,cut my lines and walk off with 6 or 7 grand worth of my hardware. If you have any information or ideas on how i could do this or of any existing products, please let me know, I don't want to go out to my boat one morning at the river and find half a engine in my boat.
    thanks for your help.

    Just plug some shore power into it, that might slow them down. I know a guy that did that to guys that were stealing gas out of his motor home. Aleast they left him the can and a hose the last ime they tried it. lol

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    I will give that a try, I think I might have my old lady sit in the back of the boat and she can "nag" them to death if they try and steal shit.

    Sanger rat, I already have a low light camera, but then, I would have to take it out from the vent over my bed... some things are worth the risk of theft.

    Exclamation Tamper-Proof Bolts

    What about Tamper-Proof bolts. They are allen head bolts that have a post sticking up in the center, so a regular allen won't fit. They do sell the tools at Craftsman and places like that but they are kinda pricey. A 9-piece set from Craftsman (5/64-1/4) is $75, so your average street punk won't have them. I've seen the bolts at ace, I think. But, at my old job we used to make them by taking a regular allen head bolt and drilling a hole in the head and inserting a pin in the center. These style bolts are used in prisons to keep the inmates from removing the bolts from everything. Hope this helps.

    This sounds like a great option. A quick web search for Tamper-Proof Bolt turned up a few pages. I didn't spend too much time investigating, but this site seemed to have quite a few options. http://www.brycefastener.com/

    Yep, those are what I was talking about, except most of those are button heads. On a blower I would be more inclined to use something with a little bit thicker head. Those Penta Head bolts that they have on there are pretty sweet looking. They look like a pretty good place to start. Good luck.
