Long time stud, first time stud changer......
How much loctite is needed?
I found in the service table of limits 25 in-lbs for 5/16 studs but they call it minimum driving torque. Does that mean when I get the stud to 25 in-lbs itís in correctly or is there another metric to go by?
In general, you only need loctite on 2-3 threads at the tip of the stud/bolt. Screw it in until the middle section (unthreaded) is just snugged against the sump.
