apply new stuff so that it will lock once in place.<

Yes, it does have Locktite on it.  However it is the kind with teflon
in it.  It does not make the bolt stick better, it allows you to get it
off later.  The type called for in my Bentley was not available in the
USA but Locktite has an American equivalent.  I forget what it is now.
I have seen similar products in auto parts stores.  Use it on the threads
and all other contacting surfaces (like under the bolt head).  I don't
think that anti-seize would work, it is probably too thick and/or slick.
I can find out what the exact type of Locktite is if people are interested.
