    Steering nozzle to Riva exit nozzle bolts walking out

    So with the OEM nozzle and those little isolating bushings in the nozzle the bolts walked out. With the R&D nozzle they did the same thing. The R&D nozzle was threaded and I could see the bolt stay still when I move the nozzle to the left but then walk when moved to the right loosening the bolt up. I thought the threads were grabbing, which they were so I drilled out the threads to just a hair larger than the bolt and ran synthetic grease on the now smooth bolt hole in the steering nozzle. I also used synthetic grease on the washers between the bolts and the nozzle to make it glide easier. The problem is I can still see it happening. WTF? Normally I use blue loctite but this time I used red on it. It's happening now but the loctite has not set.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    I'm trying to help a friend with his 2007 sea doo wake 155hp. The ski was not charging and stoped out on the water, the local sea doo workshop told him it's most likely the stator so he insisted a new genuine stator only to have the same problem. Any help would be appreciated

    the guy that hijacked is new

    red loctite should hold those bolts, forever
    if you use a primer it speeds up the cure time
