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.

      I have a 2009 Hisun 800 Strike (Coleman) with crankcase speed sensor problems. Startup runs great for a while till it heats up. Than the rpm will increase slightly above 2.0 at idle and will not shift into gear because of the high idle. It will start to run rough and have no power like a timing belt jumped a tooth or like the motor is starving for air and just stop running???  Let it cool down and it will start normal but repeat the same symptoms again. Replace the crank sensor several times but it was only a temporary fix.  Need help Thanks!!!
