Default Re: Thread Locking Compounds aka LocTite

OOOOOO, I found a use for red loctite on my bike! I wanted to lock a socket head screw into a coupling nut for my Puch head. The red stuff should only be used only where a perminant bond is required. Using it on stock hardware is a recipe for disaster. It really is that strong.

Another loctite product like threadlocker is retaining compound. This is used to hold slip fit parts together. Dowel pins in holes, bearing cups in worn seats, or maybe a sprocket adaptor on a hub.

Micargi Rover with 79cc HF. The new project!
