I just took off my clutch side engine cover to change the weeping main seal and to do a little venting of the case. I was wondering if I should use a thread sealant/locker at all on the case bolts? I have loc-tite and some non-hardening thread sealer, should I use one, the other, or neither?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Thread Sealant? (blueSS)

I would use the blue 242 or equivlent.

I would recommend never-sieze. Threadlockers really aren't required on case screws. The next time you need to access the internals you'll regret it too.

I've taken my cases covers off several times and all I do is make sure all the threads are meticulously clean, oiled or greased and then make sure to use a torque wrench. I have never had a leak or loose bolt.

I would use anti-sieze but if you really want to use Loc Tite, go with 222 (purple/small screw formula).
