I always thought red was the strongest but I've been reading different on this sight. I've always thought green-low, blue-medium, and red-high. I will look at mine when I get home.

Yeah it says red "is the highest strength."

Looks like green is under red with medium/high and wicking capabilities, then blue as the lowest strength at medium.

Looks like purple is lowest strength for soft metals.

What is the correct amount of torque on the bolts/screws per the engine builders specs?

It's what you use when you never want to take it apart again
I have a bottle of it here somewhere I'll go find it and take a pic
It's more a retaining compound but it never comes out. Red you just heat up. This stuff basically will tear the metal out.
EDIT: ill use red then cuz if a fitting gets screwed up i don't want to have to drill it out, red seams just fine. thx for the info

It looks like the green Loctite threadlocker brand and green Pioneer brand are different formulations

Green is metal lock. It's made for press fit and it's what you would use.
This is the stuff I mentioned last night . We had to heat the hell out of the parts to get them apart .

Goes Purple ,Blue , Red there a couple different versions of Red and then Green. There are also versions that use primers for when you are putting dissimilar metals together ( Stainless and Aluminum ).

Pictures of the parts you're putting together and what is their function ?

Ok srry for late reply, I was really freaking busy, but I'm off for the next 2 weeks!!!!!!😁😃😛 So back to the matter at hand, here's what I'm tryna loctite 15453501849276444598363201311435.jpg it's not fully pressed in just for photo sakes, it's a pressure line thingy that goes to the carb for the diaphragm (think that's the purpose)

Red loctite should be fine for that . If you're really worried about it coming loose buy a internal tooth lock washer that fits over the threaded section .

Am I missing something here? Is the case not threaded for it to thread into if it goes there? Was just curious why you would need to Loctite in it if it is threaded.
