Loctited Bolts


Recommended Posts

Any kind of liquid, or anything that changes how those bolts slide against those threads will change how it torques. I've broken off bolts using a torque wrench while still within specs, when I lightly lubed lug nuts n stuff. Even anti sieze has caused problems for me in the past.


  My recommendation is make sure their completely dry, holes also, and just torque them down. You can't use less torque just because they're old bolts. And you sure don't want to take chances, with aluminum threads. So imho, that's the best way to be safe.


  Also, these bolts typically have a pattern that must be followed when torqued.
