These particular capscrews are a low head height spec. They have about 35/40% less engagement depth in the hex socket vs. a standard height socket head capscrew. This was done because of the tight space reqmts in this head design, for better or worse.
Suggest always use motor oil to lube the threads, torque to spec (more is not better), and use a bit in new or as-new condition.
