Everything I know about the red thread-locker is that it will never come loose without the liberal use of hot heat. Not something most folks want to do their gun is heat it nearly red hot to get a screw out. The blue will work fine. It's designed more as a silicone vibration damper than a true locking glue. Blue hold just fine on all my Harley parts after many re-uses. Take it out, put it back in, screw/bolt stays tight.

The other thing to maybe think about is the torque applied to those screws. Tighter is not always better as you well know. I've been wanting one of those torquing screwdrivers, maybe you can buy me one and keep it forever? :whistle:

You guys are probably right - Blue is probably the way to go - so that's what I'll use.

I didn't do anything Monday after work - and I ain't too sure about today either - It was a long week and a longer weekend!!
All in a GOOD way!! (-:

Rather unusual weather though... See my "Typical SD Weather" post.

Randy, Could you PM me your shipping address??

I got a couple motorcycle tires around here with plenty of goody left in them too...
Maybe you can tell me what size tires are on your Harley as well - I'm sure a 5" or 5.5" wide x 16" for the rear - And a 21" for the front? Probably a 3" wide tire?
These will just rot before they get used...

Just a thought!! (-:
Plus, I might wanna ride out and harass you for a while someday too...

Thanks for the offer of tires but I have two spankynew tires, tubes, roll of clean duct tape, and wheel weights, just sitting patiently for me to get the ambition to put them on. I hesitate to start because it will open a can of worms. Worms that I don't want to pay for right now. For instance, my front master cylinder needs honing and a parts kit cause it leaks. I have the parts kit, don't have a cylinder hone small enough. Motorcycle shops want a first born to hone it for me or to sell me a new master cylinder...That's what the new 'bikers' do, they replace, they don't rebuild. I Iike my stock controls, they are unique because nobody else has them any longer... Hahaha.
That's just part of what the front needs. The rear swing arm bearings need some replacement too...At about $75 a side (used to be anyway) that's not happening. The shocks on this softy were used for two whole years. Not certain if later model shocks will fit. These shocks are original. Replacement cost about $750+. Highway robbery!
Also need new grip covers, new foot peg covers, the carb needs a good soak and rebuild (S&S Super B), and the list goes on. :groan: :cry:

I showed in an earlier post how I ran 50 rounds through my new 44 Mag Bounty Hunter revolver and all the screws came loose.
I took mine apart and used a little thread retainer on the screws - both of the kinds I have in my tool box.

Below is the 2 kinds of "screw-glue" I have:

Image

Red stuff made by Loctite and the blue by Permatex.

I actually did the 2 new revolvers 1st - and in the process messed up this screw when I was tightening it.

Image

I took the same screw out of my revolver and replaced it so it's all new again.
Those three screws I used the good Red stuff...

And on this screw too:

Image

The Ejaculator Rod Holder Screw - Since it came loose so easy.
I don't believe it'll be too difficult to remove the ones I used the red stuff on.
Most people will never take these apart that far and I'll feel better knowing it'll stay together. (-:

I took mine all apart:

Image

And it was really neat to see what was in there and how it works!!

There is a little roller thing that causes the hammer to slam forward:

Image

And a single piece of spring steel the pushes on the roller and makes the hammer go forward...
Really Cool Design!!
I really didn't have a clue how they were made - I never even looked on-line.
I did finally look in the manual though... (-:

There was the larger screw that holds the spring steel in place,
and another smaller screw on the bottom that holds the frame of the handle together.

Image

Both of them were also loose and I used the screw-glue on both.
It was neat to see how the grips fit in there too.

I honestly thought the grip/handle frame might be some kind of plastic - It was all steel!!

I also noticed this revolver was well oiled...

Image

Where the circles are there is oil that was there when I took it apart.

Image

I took the grip frame all apart:

Image

And I used this to put a little drop of the screw-glue where it was needed:

Image

It's a little tiny straight screw-driver insert... I mean tiny!! (-:

I put the grip fram back together with the red stuff:

Image

And when I put the grips back on, there was still oil that was noticeable
squeezing out between the parts when screwed back together!!
I say that a good thing - I shouldn't have to worry about rust!!

Image

Anyway - She's all back together!!

Image

I'll have to let the screw-glue cure for a while before I shoot it again.
I hope it'll be next week some time - Maybe even this Sunday after we get back from our Sioux Falls trip...

We'll See!! And we'll see if it holds together after another 50 rounds or so. :great:

Thanks!! (-:

Jason,
If you don’t' already have it, here's literature for your revolver

Jason its been my experience that any weapon that has to come into the US by boat is usually heavily lubricated. You will notice the same thing with guns from Brazil and China.
