Which one? The front plastic one or the alu with the motor mount? If the plastic, then probably the threads are worn, you need to replace it. If the latter, then you need to use threadlock (or better/newer threadlock).

Put a drop of CA glue into a near-stripped plastic hole to get it to last a bit longer.

If it is the plastic, I would suggest just replacing the part instead of using glue on it. The part is cheap and not hard to find. The glue might be an OK in the pit no time or parts fix to make one or two more heats... but it is not a repair.

If you feel the need you can even ditch the plastic and get something aluminum.. but of course any metal on metal threads I would agree, you need blue threadlock.
