Default Locktite on Flexplate bolts?

As the question states, should I use Locktite on the flexplate bolts? I believe they are torqued to 80 ft. lbs?

Last time I bought flexplate bolts, they came with loctite already on the threads. If yours don't have it, I would add it. Be sure not to reuse the bolts you removed, they shouldn't be re-used. I believe they are the torque to yield style.

I could be wrong but if they have loctite on them then I doubt they are torque to yield. I have reused them in the past without trouble. But loctite yes.
