Stator bolts question

I'm putting on my Woodcraft case covers and in the process of swapping the stator. Is there any reason I couldn't swap the OEM torx screws for equivalent allen head bolts? Just thinking ahead for when I might need to pull it all apart again. Don't want to deal with those BS torx screws again.

Re: Stator bolts question

If they are torqued and locktited properly, you might want to stick with the torx head...JMO
