Default Thread Locking Compounds aka LocTite

There is always some disagreement over the use or the non use of thread locking compounds. The best known of these is the brand name, Loctite.
Here's a link to some very good information regarding this product >

I came across this card that has some additional info that you might find informative. I personally do not use thread locking products on any engine fastener but I have used the light duty, Blue #242 or the Green #290 on fender brackets and chain guard fasteners. I have no use for the Red #262 on either my bikes or cars.
