Re: Details on First Motor (was [T3] Photos of the oil cooler rework)


hi
  loctite flat washer lock washer spring or star is the way to go here its
real tiresome tearing it all down just because a fan shroud bolt came lose!

on a side note about fastening in general as i get on a bit i have started
to use locking nuts with the plastic inserts for lots of tasks just like
this the only trouble you cannot put a tourque on these like you would
normally !!! sounds slack but i just trust my judement on it to be honest
now.

 if you havent wrenched to much in your life i dont advise this but if you
know the difference between how tight say 7lb/ft is on the sump acorn nuts
and how tight you do a wheel axle nut up you may be allright!

i would certainly never use the nylock nuts on anything that was extremly
tourque dependendent.

neil verdon.
