Re: Service manual says "discard & replace fasteners"
Curious, are you running factory or aftermarket radius rods? Aftermarket ones adjusted incorrectly can stress and shear the mounting bolts.
If OEM, it is most likely just a bad bolt. It happens, but not very common. I have seen it more with the smaller 10x1.25 bolts.
We replace nuts every time. Bolts we inspect and reuse if ok, except on racecars where we replace every bolt every time.
