I don't know if I would use the red thread lock, but the blue "medium" stuff, yes. Clean the grub screw, and pinion gear threads with motor spray, or electrical contact cleaner...something that evaporates quickly. Then you can apply your thread lock on the pinion gear grub/set screw; making sure it's on the flat spot of motor's shaft, and tighten as normal. Let the thread lock cure for 24 hours if possible.

My favorite thread lock is the gel type...
