I am presently having my head rebuilt, (well not mine, even if sometimes I =
think it could be a good idea...) and I am still wondering if Loctite for t=
he EM studs is a good idea. Patient is a WX engine for an 83 urQ.
I have bought all the new studs, bolts, washers from OEM (cheap, studs: 1.0=
8$, nuts:2.30$, washers: 3.20$, all CDN money).
The head will be sparkling new and I will tap all holes with a correct 8mm =
But, Is it a good idea to add some Red Loctite (or any other stuff in fact)=
to the studs, head side?
Or should I have the studs drilled to add some safety wiring?
What I am looking for is plain theory, (the list is very good for that...),=
real BTDTs (much better) or any info worth mentioning, even if the patient=
was a Dorf or an Ovlov.
So: Loctite or not?
