What's going to happen when the loctite hardens and then breaks up and hard chunks of loctite go into the crankcase
Not only that the rocker arm assembly is designed to have a little side to side movement so everything will line up when the top end is assembled, as long as there is no up/down movement everything is OK.
If I read the article right the OP mentioned that there were no bushings in the rocker arms which is WRONG the rocker arm support plate have bushing on the ends where the end of the rocker arm shafts are. So if the OP doesn't have bushing in the support plate then HD forgot to install them.
I would stay away from doing this mod. JMO
Agree with your loctite comments... Going back to the rocker shaft; if you didn't view his video please do. It appears that the shaft is installed correctly and the shaft can partially rotate and make the tapping noise that were hear at times. Looks like this can be a real issue on some bikes or if HD really forgot to install bushings that is a bigger problem.
