Default exhaust cone screw partially unscrewed

Hello all,

I took my old VT-90 (first generation Rabbit) out of storage (nearly 10 years), and after a few minor details, I did a few starts up to the iddle only and I noticed that smoke seemed to escape between the exhaust cone and the turbine body. Looking closer I noticed that one of the screws was partially unscrewed and some others were not completely screwed in (see picture). I screwed it back in and everything works normally, no more smoke.

Has this ever happened to you, should I be concerned that other things (more critical) have come loose inside?

THANKS,

Happened to two of my turbines, I just tightened them ( don’t over tighten them ) and keep flying your engine.
