    Question Questions On Riva Grate Install

    Did anybody use Loctite at the head (single bolt) & if so red or blue? What was the black stuff at the head, silicone or more of a glue based sealant? What did you use? The manual only calls for Loctite 5900 at the head but I don't have that available so I need to know what's comparable.

    Just curious as to what everybody else used. I certainly don't want this thing coming off @ 70+.

    Thanks in advance,

    i know everyone is gona call me out on this one but i used a little bit of 5200 fast cure. This was a long time ago when i was a huge newbie and i didnt know how strong the **** was. im just praying i dont ever have to take it off. Im also a little worried about my grate coming off.

    Not big of a deal if it falls off....It happened to me twice and did not even feel a difference...that was just me though.... I even had it knocked out of the brass inserts and hold on to just the front bolt at 60+ and only felt a slight bump....

    So no silicone at the head? The manual calls for red Loctite on the rear bolts but I kinda thought that was overkill myself. Any problems?

    Amen Bro! I remember how frustrated you were getting; glad to see you're back on track. I have those bad luck runs now & then...Just part of life I guess.

    I use permatex ultra black under the front of the grate, it is at most auto stores. It is real strong also, but will release with some pulling if you need to get it off.
