Do you want to modify the varsdict values in place?

varsdict['Feq_(i,_j,_k,_l)'] *= A[i,j,k,l]

which is a short-cut for this slightly longer version:

temp = varsdict['Feq_(i,_j,_k,_l)'] * A[i,j,k,l]
varsdict['Feq_(i,_j,_k,_l)'] = temp

If you want to leave the original in place and do something else with the 

result = varsdict['Feq_(i,_j,_k,_l)'] * A[i,j,k,l]
