Question about using safety wired bolts in high-stress applications.
People go to the trouble of polishing connecting rods to eliminate
sharp edges which may cause stress cracks.
Wouldn't drilling holes in hardened or forged bold heads do exactly
the opposite? (i.e. make the bolt more likely to fail)
