    WTF are you using green loctite for? Blue won't take the place of green if you need retaining compound... green is supposed to be used for retaining compound...

    Same here... I use red on SC shaft nuts though...

    I suspect he was looking for a retaining compound... green isn't meant to be used with threads. It's used for pressing things together you never want to come apart... I don't know of any substitute for green as a retaining compound...

    Thanks for the replies. I need it for the flywheel I had to remove to replace the stator. Regards

    Don't use loctite on a flywheel... it will never come off again... make sure the key looks good and tighten the nut to spec and it will be just fine.

    green is used to fill up gap between bearing and housing or shaft, between seal and crankcase and so.
