Post ford starter question

i just bought a ford truck with a 302. my question is, do the starter bolts ever work their way loose?? i live in a really good neighbourhood so i dont think anyone tried to rip it off, but the bolts are loose, i shut it off and when i went to restart , it was just spinning, i reached in with a wheel wrench to tap it, and it moved,i got someone to hold it up and it worked,now i have to tighten it. is this normal for fords to spontainiously come from together. ?? mikey

Probably wasn't torqued correctly when it was installed.

4 Jaw is probably correct, I've only seem one that "may" have come loose and it was on a car that had a long time miss which I attribute the loosening to.
