Me too, but the epoxy (very low viscosity for layups) was on hand, and the locktite wasn't. I warmed the tops a little, and the epoxy wicked right into the seam. I wiped off the excess and let the epoxy cure. I'll re-install tonight and check them out.

Happy Ending

I rode the RS today with the epoxied up caps. Suhweet! Gawd I wish I'd noticed the loose cap years ago!
Thanks all for the wise counsel.
