It's 243...not 643.

Having slept on this issue overnight, some of the problems very well have been the rider in the linked thread torqued to 18ft/lbs on dry threads. 18ft/lbs on dry threads is going to give a super-low clamp load that will allow the assembled part to side slip pretty easily.

This observation backs up an drives home the importance of filling in the airspace found in between the male and female threads with a liquid that turns to a thermoset plastic with thread lubricating qualities to allow a sufficient clampload to be introduced into an assembly to keep it from falling apart.

I went back and pulled a few Power Point slides directly related to the friction loss on lubricated threads vs. non-lubricated threads. Here's the talking points:

Approximately 85 to 90% of the effort used to tighten a threaded fastener is lost to friction, which leaves only about 10 to 15% of that effort is used to generate clamp load.

Another slide shows clampload (lbs.) generated on different base metals torqued to 10ft/lbs along with a calculated K Factor (Friction Factor)

The following examples are listed as:
Bolt Nut Washer K Factor Clampload

Plain Cadmium Plain 0.15 2,805
Zinc Plain Zinc 0.35 1,546
Zinc Zinc Zinc 0.55 960


The table listed above shoes that Zinc is a very sticky coating with a very high K factor. The low clampload backs up the claim that zinc plated fasteners are sticky.

I have NEVER understood the requirement of torquing fasteners dry. It makes more sense to me to specify what lubricant to use.
Could someone technically oriented explain what circumstances that REQUIRE non lubricated assembly and why, other than on applications such as oxygen service where the lubricant becomes a dangerous contaminant?

thanks again for your valuable input on this issue. above agrees with my assessment that when using a low torque value like 18ft lb on a brake caliper in a vibration rich environment. use of a thread locker like Loctite 243 insures bolt will not back out from low clamploads (lbs) resulting from use of 18ft lb torque values.

seems loctite's lubricity also aids in overcoming stickiness from finish on fasteners and it's effects on final clamploads. this really points out importance of careful cleaning with low residual solvents when reusing existing bolts.

That's so when it falls out you don't lose it!!

Ok I bought an aftermarket part (starter tensioner tamer) that came with a nice little packet of Loctite 262. Unfortunately I left it in my garage over the winter, exposed to temps well below 0F.

Can I use it, or should I get a new pack? It says for industrial use only so I'm not sure I can pop down to Autozone & grab one.

I had foot surgery (8 screws and a plate installed) this past Wed after an off on a pre-ride of the Arkansas 500.

I'm stuck here at the house and ain't going too far from the computer for the next 8 to 10 weeks, so any questions are gonna get a speedy response.

Soooo....Are you gonna post up the Dirty details in the Face plant thread? Hope you heal up well and soon!

Sorry to hear that Dirty, I presume you advised using the stick thread lockers for surgical hardware? In all seriousness, hope you heal fast and can recruit someone cute to wait on you!

Ouch you poor bloke hope you heal ok.

.....and hopefully TinyD did't say anything sarcastic.... typically my junior would have given me a lesson on how I did it wrong

Hey dirty, hope you are feeling better! I'm back in MH now, love seeing this thread bumped and all the info shared. Gotta say, the pavement riding back in DÜS kicked butt compared to what we have around here.



<-- still coating everything that doesn't call out a particular product with 290 just so I can get it back out eventually.

The thread got buried.

Thanks guys I really do appreciate the well wishes, stitches are out, scabs are flaking off, and Tiny D, who's taller than I am now, has been hounding me to bring him to the track after we replaced his clutch plates on his 250. It's funny because it starts every week on Monday or Tuesday-

Hey Mr. Dirty (I've been his step dad for 8 years now but he still calls me Mr. Dirty)..uhh, what are you going to be doing this weekend? Oh, I don't know.... uhhh, you think we could go riding......?

Still not sure about pulling the trailer with a gimp throttle foot in a plastic boot.

Now to get a sturdier pair of boots than my 10 year old Oxtar Infinitys.
