Not sure how else to describe it. If I wanted to permanently set a polished pin in a reamed hole. What Locktite should I use?
Thank you

It depends on clearance and material.

I've used loctite 243 on security pin. I use the 243 and 2701 on everything and have never had anything come apart

Steel and aluminum
Dang,
I was afraid there was going to be questions. I just want an all purpose strong easy to use locktite.
243-2701-got it.
I went over to the local NAPA and he told me there are so many choices. I just want one or two.
Thanks

I use green Locktite 290 for assembled part. 243 is a threadlocker medium duty

If there's a Loctite (note the spelling) Applications Engineer reading this thread, he/she is :grin::grin::grin:.

I've read that Loctite sells more than 1,000 types of high-technology sealants, adhesives, and coatings. Understanding the significant factors is important to making a good choice.

I downloaded the locktite Product Guide. They do make a bunch of products and yes the clearance makes a difference.
Thank you!

They say that 620 is ideal for retaining pins. If that takes to long the 638 is faster. That one will be permanate. I used that on a pin and it is permanate.

The 638 will work. It is a bearing retaining compound. I use it on fits and to permanently mount anything

Seems like the 600 series is the direction I am heading
