Ya it had backed out to the end of the thread...ya I know blue locktite didn’t hold it for more than 25 miles I'm disappointed to....and ya I know, what an A$$ I am for trusting it in replace for an actual lock washer. (what I get for being cheep)

However your information will be of great help I'll do a real job of it later on tonight. Fortunately today I just happened to have a socket wrench and a #19 socket in my school backpack so I got home ok (its as if I don't trust my bike). I can’t thank you enough for your info because all I did when I first installed it was tighten the nut and I didn't seat it.

Its and open shut case Al. thanks!
