Re: Loctite OR Anti Seize Lubricant
Also there are different types of Loc-tite. Be sure you use the right one for the job
Blue - light duty, can remove if needed - kind of like a nylon locking nut
Red - medium duty, must heat with propane torch to remove(most widely used)
Green - heavy duty, permanent - DO NOT use this anywhere on your car!
Anti-seize on anything removable. ALWAYS use when you have 2 different materials going together such as a stainless bolt into sheet-metal, standard grade bolt into aluminum, etc. Case in point, my brother bought a billet aluminum drop hitch for his truck and put a steel 1-7/8" ball on it. A year or so goes by and he wanted to change out the ball to a 2" to borrow my trailer. Didn't use anti-seize in the ball shaft or the threads. Even though we got the nut loose about 1/2 way before the threads were destroyed using penetrating lube and heat, that ball was not coming out! It became a challenge and I broke out the old oxy/acetylene torch to do some damage. I had it in a vise and the hitch and ball cherry red and it still would not budge. The metal ball shaft and aluminum "fuzed" itself together. At that point it was chalked up at a loss before we heated it to oblivion - it won!
