    locktite or no locktite

    I am now in the process of reassembling after my flywheel bolts backed out (this happened twice). Being very gunshy and poor after replacing the parts twice, I would like to get a poll of who would place locktite and which one on the flywheel bolts. I have all brand new parts except for the crank on the flywheel assembly (pin, bolts, stator plate, trigger wheel, flywheel, magneto). Thanks folks.

    I ordered my bolts from Jerry and they came with a loctite-like material on them.....

    I was definately leaning towards using locktite based on the other 2 incidents that I had. For the flywheel bolts on my car it calls for red, but I know were are dealing with 2 different animals.

    on something this critical I would use the red stuff and worry about getting the bolts out should I ever need to when that time comes. be sure to clean all of that yellow crap off of the bolts and chase the threads with a bolt with a flat spot ground onto it. chasing the threads with a tap can cut metal out and open up the thread clearance which can contribute to the bolts loosening.

    Use red. You can always heat the bolts to get them back out.
