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

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

It depends on clearance and material.
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

Great, keep them coming I'll look up the specs. I saw a video of someone using 636?

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!

Yup, depends on the clearance but my favorite is 603.

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
