Loc-tite on 951 engine
I'm getting ready to put my carbs, exh. manifold, headpipe and head back on my ski. So, what loc-tite should I use and were at?

thsi is what I did on my past c-doos and my GPR
exh. manifold -red
headpipe - red
head - antisieze
I would also take the time and chase all the thread holes with a tap or thread cleaner and use a shop vac and suk out all the debris. You want clean threads so no torque readings are altered.

Antiseize is your best friend. Mainly in the exhaust manifold area. People never grease up the shaft on the bolts in the manifold. Thats where most of the time corrossion occurs. Then you have a hard time getting the manifold off. But if you antisieze all the bolts, it will give it the ability to come on and off with some pulling. I've had to break bolts and then tap them out to get the bolts out the exhaust manifold from so much corrossion. So this is what I do now:
carbs - blue loctite on the threaded area and antisieze on the shaft of the bolts.
exh. manifold - red loctite on the threaded area and antisieze on the shaft of the bolts.
headpipe - blue or red loctite
head - blue loctite on the threaded area and antisieze on the shaft.
I have 3 bottles of antisieze at my house,
RQ has 3 bottles of KY he uses at his house, hahahaha

Thanks guys, I think instead of antiseize I'll probably just use marine grease that I have on the shafts.

put grease on the carb bolts and the head bolts then red loctite on all the exhaust bolts

marine grease will work just fine, just that antisieze never goes away,

All of the above is great advice. I used I believe red loctite to hold my rave valves on tight after one worked loose after a day of hard riding, didn't do any major damage luckily, but caused oil to be splattered everywhere under the seat, gave me a big scare. This on a 2001 GTX 951 non-DI. So if rave valves apply to you, you might want to consider this.
