That's true..

Had personal experience using bolts that are TOO LONG in one of my MCR320's, got the loop all installed and fired it up, then all of a sudden I started smelling ethelyne glycol and look down at a puddle on my floor under one of my rads. I've since soldered and fixed the holes, but that could have been a bad situation if it was in my case.
