Default Re: Ins and Outs (perhaps?) of Red Threadlocker

Here's a little something that I used to do: over in Nam on the fast boats we had a lot of aluminum parts and hardware that were prone to high corrosion from salt water., when you went to remove a fastener or stud from aluminum housing it would pull/strip the threads in the housing. To prevent this --now get this -- we used unflavored Milk of Magnesia, the magnesium would prevent the threads from pulling out when you were disassembling even when you had every thing torqued to specks. They used this stuff on helicopter engines too. If you think I'm full of crap, TRY IT!
