Hello to all, I'm new here and loctite topic bring me in... A lot of great info on a subject! I'm curetly removing old studs from my vespa hub, because they are to short for new aluminium wheels. I need to replace them with longer one. The old ones had no thread in the middle so they are locking on one side with no threaded part, and on the back side they are punched at the end and are locked not to unscrew. I bought new studs, but they are threaded all the way, and I have no tool to punch them on the back, and also don't want to brake hub (it's aluminium). The best solution I could think of is loctite. Wich one to use? When those studs are in place i need to fasten rim on them. Studs are M8. I will have no need to remove the studs again (eventualy for few years if I damage the treads) Where I live I found only 2701 as the strongest threadlocker (green), i think 243 is to weak for my needs. I hope i explaind well, sry for my lack o english.. Thanks for any help!
