Based upon some of the replies, I have to ask:

Do you think, in the entire history of the Type IV engine, that no properly installed flywheel has EVER been saved from loosening by a thread locker applied during assembly?

I'm experienced enough to never say never.

Honestly guys, it's just some Loctite on some flywheel bolts. I don't care if you use it or not. I do, and most flywheels I remove have remnants of some as well.

Ouch. Loctite probably wouldn't save an improperly installed flywheel, in my opinion. So to me it's not really insurance at all. Tack welding the bolts to the flywheel would also keep them from backing out.... OR people can just make sure they do the job right. Clean the end of the crank and clean the recess in the flywheel. Torque the bolts with a torque wrench and a flywheel lock. Use a new locking plate every time and new bolts if in doubt.

And I'd cuss a fit if I fought all day to remove flywheel bolts that were Loctite'd in.

Just seems like a whole lotta band-aid to me. But like you said, I don't care if you use it or not.

I see nothing wrong with Blue Loctite myself.

The Class fit of newer bolts might not be the same as original, or the internal thread Class fit could have been compromised.

I find it funny that people are willing to spend $ on other "upgrades" or "improvements" that are not factory to their car, yet get bent out of shape over a simple bolt and adding an "upgrade' to the threads (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I am with you Joe. If the red Loctite is good enough for the terrorist in Moab, it is good enough for me.

You guys want to argue about something as trivial as Loctite on a bolt? Okay. Now you get Ford content.

As promised, rust repair on a (my) F250....


A good 8' bed goes for $3000 in this area. I was able to go to the local U Pull It with a generator and sawzall and cut off what I needed for $160.

I was very happy to discover that my 2006 is made from .050". I expected .040". Of course, the .050" is much harder for form by hand....

I admit to not having the sheet metal skills to create a complicated compound curve. However, I can create three pieces that do the same thing. It's hard to see in the picture, but they all have individual simple curves that are welded together. And so you know, this is IMG 914 on my iPhone. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Looks great .. Ps love loctite as an extra precaution.. The big thing I do know from my NC3 training is torque changes based off of what is applied to the threads..

Keep up the good work..

Good ole' Rustoleum oil-based paint.

I shoot it out of an old siphon feed Sharpe. Works perfectly.

It's now ready for the painter....

Looking good Joe! I did almost that very same repair to an F150 bed a few years ago (mine included some more frame work at the same time though). Have you already replaced the rear spring perches? It seems like they all fail at some point...

I love it! Retaliation by Ford.

Sounds as if the consensus is: Loctite is optional (but perfectly fine).. new bolts are a must.

Peace, out.

This one is a 250. Totally different animal. The frame is fine.
