When does it make sense to add factor loadings given mod indices (2)?

If the cross-loading is substantively meaningful and the modification index is larger than 3.8.

Thanks. So what does this exactly mean? And what do you do next with these variables if the model fit improves?

You may find our Topic 1 course video helpful. In it we go through an EFA and discuss cross-loadings. Also Timothy Brown's book on CFA seems to get good reviews.
