- Stupid question – loctite on bolts
This is probably a really daft question but I guess thats what the forum is for.
Ive sent my rear shock off to be serviced, its now back and working so I need to attach it back on. When I attach it back on do I need to put a bit of loctite on the bolts to keep them tight. Bit worried they might work a bit loose otherwise.Posted 6 years agoteaselMember
Probably more important to torque them right
Agreed, else it could bind. A threaded fastener (or nut and bolt) is designed to stay ‘locked’ if tightened to the correct torque, so in theory it shouldn’t need a threadlocker if you use a torque wrench.
However, a little bottle of threadlock costs considerably less than a torque wrench…Posted 6 years ago
