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.
It's threaded, loctite is like glue, if it's threaded it can obviously back out and with loctite it will prevent that.

271 lock tight .good luck getting it apart you have to heat it or you break the bolt or destroy the threads. They make 241 hard to find its red also but more for giving to take it apart.only use 271 if you never want to take it apart it can cause lot of issues

Keep in mind though if you are using a 90 degree fitting it can not rotate around because it will now be pulling on the hose at the same time. We use Permatex 56521. It is a thread sealer on our boats engines for both the water fittings and the carb pulse fittings. These are straight fittings and have yet to ever see one back out or turn and it is strong when you are removing it and bites good. We run 18,000 to 21,000 rpm constantly on the water and also running gas and oil mix just like you.
