    Loctite crank case gp1300

    Putting my engine back together and the service manual calls for red loctite? Is that right? Removing the bolts i recall no red loctite just white on pretty much everything. Anyone have input?

    Just use some good blue stuff, but make sure you brake cleaner prep the surfaces.

    After degreasing and wire wheeling all threads, I use a drop of blue threadlocker on every bolt.

    Loctite 243 (blue) is what I use. Thoroughly clean the bolt threads and run a tap in all the bolt holes to clean them out. Then spray the bolts and the bolt holes with carb cleaner or a similar cleaner.
