Default What Loctite do you use..

Okay everybody. When I run out of R-48, which Loctite or other brand bearing retainer stuff do I use? Local auto parts store (NAPA) has TWO kinds of green loctite type stuff, they aren't sure wich one to use and neither do I.[8D]
Am drawing on the collective wisdom here for the answer. Cerntainly somebody else has substituted other "green" stuff in place of the Align supplied R-48. And Align sure doesn't include much either.
Thanks,

Ever since I couldn't undo the green one, I've been using blue for everything. So far so good for what that's worth, Andy

i forget what brand it was that i got at my LHS, but it was blue. don't use the green loctite as you will not be able to remove the parts after you put them in place and it cures. this may sound desirable but if you break something and you used the green, you have to use a soldering iron or butane torch to break the loctite risking further damage. the blue loctite works very well however. it still takes a lil bit of elbow grease to break the bond but, it holds up very well under the stress, both in helis and cars.


good luck, wraith
