    ................."Drive the seal in with a soft face dead blow hammer
    and a large socket. This seal is notorious for coming out. We recommend
    a small drop of super glue to help hold it in place. Install bowl and
    torque bolts to 50ft. lbs."

    A little antiseize can't hurt , looseness on Bowl bolts seems to occur long term as the gaskets would shrink ...

    Antisieze is your friend. All submerged hardware get antisieze. loader bolts, bowl bolts, steering connections, droop bolts.

    Then again all stainless fasteners should have antisieze on it to prevent galling when using stainless on stainless.
