c/s loctite question


Recommended Posts

are you supposed to put a small drop on each spline on the c/s shaft? or less loctite then that?

FAQ says :"Apply 4 drops (More is not better, if you douse the splines and the loctite gets under the spacer and into the seal area, once it sets, the seal can be damaged) of 271 to the splines of the counter shaft, just outboard of where the sprocket will rest once installed. Distribute the drops around the shaft evenly. The threadlocker tends to wick into the spline gaps, so you really do not need to slather a lot on to get the job done. Install the spacer and o rings onto the C/S, and then the sprocket. Use a drop of 271 on the counter shaft threads and install the lock washer & C/S nut. Using the chain as a holding tool, tighten the C/S nut to 80 ftlb. Remove the chain and rotate the countershaft by hand, It should rotate without any binding. Some drag will be present and is expected. If it rotates freely, then you are good to go. Bend the locking washer over, let the thread locker cure for a minimum of 8 hours and go ride.":thumbsup:
