Main bolts on 4tec?
GUys I have rebuilt a few 4tecs around 10ish and I have never noticed the main bolts having loctite on them at all. The manual says to use Blue and I have always done it per the manual, but I always ask myself each time why the main bolts when removed from a virgin motor seam to not have any loctite on them at all and seam as if they were just installed with oil..
Whats are you guys thoughts on this, Is it rotax just being over protective in the manual thinking the loctite is a safty measure? Not trusting rebuilders? Or what?

I use red loctite on the stock Main bolts and the arp lube when I put the arp main studs in, never had any issues either way.

WOW red loctite? I am OK with Blue. But still unsure on ROtaxs method from the factory? Loctite or just oil?

Arp moly sounds great. Didnt really think of that. I always just did what the manual called for, but was just confused as heck to why they didnt have it on there new. Hell they love the yellow shit. Its on every other bolt.
Thanks I will use the moly good tip.
