Not sure I would have used RED Loctite. For sure they won't come loose, but you generally have to HEAT 'red' to remove them. Can do, but maybe over-kill here. Time will tell if 'Blue' is enough, but I feel it is. Put plenty on, and fill the voids. Due to adding a lubricant during torquing, I would stay at the 26# figure. If anyone has a problem after adding SUFFICIENT 'blue', for sure let all of us know.
