    Started to bolt 203 to 400 adapter plate on and noticed that only two of the old bolts had lock washers on them. Do you put them on, does it matter.Also the plate only had one of the little rubber washers left in it pretty sure I need these.Tried searching thanks in advance.

    If those bolts come loose it can wreak havoc on your transmission case. In addition to lock washers on all 4 bolts, I would also clean the bolts and bolt holes with brake cleaner and then apply a liberal amount of Loctite to each bolt, the 4-wheeler's friend. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
