Any strong feelings on this? I'd rather use blue loctite so that the screws are re-usable, and so that I don't take a chance at bending the throttle shaft while staking.

The screws and throttle shaft are brass and countersunk (it is an old Holley carb).

Thanks in advance for the feedback!

Both surely can't hurt.
