I would be buying a new Morini engine crank for my hybrid ''very often'' with out the use of lock tight. It has it's ''true manufacture's'' intended purpose where I use it.
For the Happy Time motors well those engines are just plain comical to me. lol
Folks that weigh very little and ride are on a different scale than some others. A work truck wears out from a working hard. Stuff does and can rattle loose.
Quote: Cycling component manufacturers sometimes use an "aerobic", or "dry" thread-locker for their products, such as on brake caliper bolts. This compound acts primarily as thread filler. If the part is removed, the compound tends to break down, so use a liquid thread-locker to supplement.
LoctiteŽ 222- a low strength threadlocker (water bottle cage bolts, etc.)
LoctiteŽ 242- a low strength threadlocker, but stronger than the 222 (good general use threadlocker)
LoctiteŽ 246- a medium strength threadlocker
LoctiteŽ 290- a medium strength thread
locker, with low viscosity wicking properties
LoctiteŽ 266 high strength threadlocker
LoctiteŽ 270 high strength threadlocker
LoctiteŽ RC603 retaining compound (for poor press fits)
LoctiteŽ RC609 retaining compound (for poor press fits)
LoctiteŽ RC680 retaining compound, high strength, large gap ability (for poor press fits)
No nubee will ever know their materials. It is a given... in light of such they need to know what they are doing?? IMHO anyway. Shoot as 2D says mebbe they should steer clear of it all together. As for me I will use it for its proposed intended manner.
