Thanks to everyone for the replies on my mysterious loosening dashpot 
dampers.  I technically didn't ask a question but it looks like I don't 
need to.

I'm hesitant to score the threads but I do have one spare dashpot so if 
necessary I may give it a try. Or the non-destructive radiator clamp method 
Paul suggested. However, changing the oil to a lighter 5W-30 and removing 
the gaskets so I could screw the dampers in a bit deeper may have fixed or 
alleviated the problem.

The dampers did not pop out today under the same driving conditions and 
weather as yesterday when the front one loosened twice. So it looks promissing.
