Default Elevator counter weights confusion?

I have checked out all of the different ideas about how to make sure the bolts holding counter weights do not become loose, now I am confused.
1 is it possible to achieve proper toque on the fastener holding counter weight.
2 is tight as possible the right torque, if so, will red loc-tite keep the fasteners from coming loose.
3 if you go the nut plate version and there is a void where the nuts and washers were should that be fill with something like RTV to fill the void and anchor the nut plate
4 if you use the nut plate should you stop torquing when the bolt starts to embed in the weight
Thanks
Dave
