Where does the Loctite go???
Little help her guys, ready to put my 05 RXP S/C cases back together.
Manual recommends Loctite 5910 to apply it with a roll or your fingers, Whatever....
So the attached picture depicts where I would put it (in Red)
SO would it go all mating surfaces????? Or the outer perimeter only?????
Any help or your experience would help, Thanks

On all mating surface and use grey right stuff .... Don't get any inside the cases , wipe away ...

The trick is to not get too light but not to excessive either, when it squeezes you don't want that stuff getting cought in the oil pump screens. Be sure to remove ANY oil residue on the mateing surfaces, I use rubbing alcohol or any cleaner that don't leave an oily film.

Thanks for the help guys!
ONE more for you........
No where on the manual states that the 8 large bolts holding
the 2 halves together are stretch bolts are they?????
I know the connecting rod caps are.

First of all, I use Threebond 1211 for sealing cases. I've tried all the recommended case sealants, and I like it the best. It sets up slower and is less viscous than other sealants. Second, I don't bother spreading it. I lay down a 1/16" bead on all mating surface, when the cases come together, it finds its own way across all the mating surfaces. Lots quicker, and pretty accurate amount of sealant this way.
If you ever go into an engine production facility, this is how it is done by robots, a bead laid down on the mating surface that spreads out once mating halves come together.

Plus 1 the main thing about three bond as all sealants they seep some on the outside that dries as a goob we can peel off what about the inside? As seadood said three bond breaks down viscousity wise as right stuff will be a inhabitant in oil screens galleys crevices etc. I also recommend three bond on supercharger housings same effect!!!
your block is nice and clean your over the major hump take that red pen and run that on all the surfaces even on inner there
