I bought 4 UJs from Checker Auto hoping it will cure my 60-65MPH drive train vibration. These are the long stem grease nipple ones made by Precision. Rave says I need to replace the Nyloc Nuts (all 16 of them).Can I get away with Permatex Blue?
Oops my bad, I meant to say "Loctite Blue". I was looking at "Permatex Rightstuff" for a different application when I wrote that message.Escape said:Being strict, nyloc nuts can only be used once, as the second time round the locking action is no longer guaranteed.
But in practise you can usually get away with reusing them a couple of times.
I've never used Permatex, but assume it is similar to Loctite's thread lock, which is a perfect substitute for nylocs. A bit cheaper, but a bit more hassle.
As sais Theo, I also reuse the nylocs, as long as I feel there enough friction so you can't turn them without a socket.TheoR said:
