I almost always use anti seize compound on bolts (except if locktite is specified) and tighten to specifications. Using anti seize compound on bolts prevents them from corroding. Never had a problem with bolts working loose or fighting to get them off. The only time I had trouble getting a set screw off with locktite applied (on my lawn mower) I just heated it up with my propane torch. The locktite appeared to soften like wax and come off easily.
