I have used standard type loctite with success. It is basically doing the same as what it does for threads.
Great for worn splines etc... fills all the gaps and stops any movement. It is the movement which causes the wear.
Also I find the metal surfaces seem to be protected from rust. JFYI
And Christian.... doing fine tnx same back
