I believe you guys on this subject, but I had two back out. The first one was a novarossi ultra and the second was an RB 07. But, no more worries for me. I just use a little paste thread lock from AutoZone.

Nightmare, I noticed your signiture had HN CD3 listed with the d3r......how are you doing with the shaft drive car these days? I made a switch from the ntc3 to the mtx4. Don't think that I will go back to shaft drive and ball diffs anytime soon.

maybe I'm just cautious, but I'd be worried about getting some in the engine.....

Sook - Yeah I'm going ok I've broke a good setup but Ill get there.
(ball diffs and imperial screws/bearings turned me away from buying a NTC3 may years ago)

no worries. I don't worry much about it getting into the engine because it is a paste and not the droplet type of thread lock. I put it on the threads and that is where it stays.

should be alright then as long as it doesnt leave any on the button threads after removing the plug....

just seems like it would harden and then crumble after removing the plug....
like I said.. I'm pretty anal about my engine.....

thanks.. I feel pretty confident in redoing the epoxy in the crank..

I was more or less just voicing my experiences with the engine....
and for those that don't know, evidently wd-40 and the epoxy dont mix very well... it causes it to come loose....

WD40? Water Displacement #40 - you had water in your engine? now that is rough...

If you where using it as a "after run" you would be way better going getting some automatic transmission fluid (/power steering fluid) or in the hobby shops better known as "after run oil" just more $$$

Hmm Strange the STS epoxy had problems then and the other engines didn't - or was there no epoxy in the other engines Or maybe it was not the WD40?

Since I aim racing every 2 weeks I'm not putting anything in ATM. Just too slack/lazy But when I do its ATF fluid.

Ever since I switched to wildcat fuel I dont either. LOL...kinda same reasons lazy and I trust this fuel.

I do make sure to run it dry though , after it shuts down on the track. Take it back to the starter box , apply the glow-start and restart it for however long it takes to finally stop combustion.

This ensures minimal fuel residuals and keeps the need for after-run to a minimum. Im kinda just testing to see what goes on , so far it seems good. I run monthly to bi monthly dependant on if I do a quick mid month tune and clutch check in my front driveway. Then I normally run the rest of the fuel through it on the box.
