    Yes, I have the Dresser Duals. I had everything apart (which is when the problem started - figures) to replace my cam cover. When I did the reassembly, I used the HD Screaming Eagle gaskets which are flat as well.

    I think Iíll pretend Iím in my 20s again and just double nut it. Bwahahaha

    I have the same problem on my 2016 SGS. Itís the only one that wonít stay tight. So I ended up putting another nut on top of it and that is the temporary fix.

    So, I finished the rebuild. Didn't need to use brake cleaner because the heads were completely cleaned when the port work was done. I didn't want to double-nut it, worried about getting a wrench in there later when trying to remove it. I wanted one solution for both front and back exhaust port.

    So, starting with very clean exhaust port bolts, I used new serrated flange nuts that I bought instead of the smooth stock ones. I could not find them at Lowes, Home Depot, Autozone, or O'Reily's in the right size, so I bought them online. I have included a photo. Murphy's Law, the weather went bad just as I completed the rebuild, so I haven't been able to put miles on it. I'll try to remember to report back once the weather allows about 1000 miles on it.

    I was thinking star washers but this looks like a better / cleaner looking idea.
