confused 1983 2.3 carb question

Hey, I was wondering whether anyone else has had a problem with the spacer to carb bolts on the one barrel carter carb vibrating loose? I've tried locktite and they still vibrate out 3 of them I can put a screw in and put a lockwasher and nut on top but there is one more hole that I can't get a nut on. Anyone had this problem before and found a fix please share before I have to break out the duct tape

I'm not sure whether you could or not really. Not sure why you would want to. My truck is pumping out an incredible 80 hp
