I had some loose ones on a D8K, service truck/mechanic guy, tried something similar, and still had some loose pads, I had to "nurse' it through til the job was done, was due for some undercarriage work anyway.

If I am not mistaken, I thought another cause of loose pads is the result of painting the top of the chain/links, and say the mating surface of the bottom side of pad,prior to fastening the pads. Something about that whereas and or perhaps the mil thickness of the paint gives way after some run time.

You always clean the rails and pads before bolting them on. A bit of oil on the new bolts doesn't hurt. You don't have to use Berco bolts, just track bolts the right size. If the pads are pounded out from being loose for too long, replace the pads or they'll never stay tight unless you weld them on.
