Flywheel retaining nut, loctite yey or ney?
Posted Today, 06:10 AM
the 3 questions I have are:
1. Do I need to use loctite on the nut that holds the flywheel in place?
2. can I tighten it using an impact wrench? (I had ro remove the flywheel to get better access to remove the sheared bolts)
3. If the answer to 2 is no then what is the recommended toque spec on the flywheel NUT?

Any critical fastener gets thread lock or a mechanical lock.
Any fastener that has shown a propensity to loosen due to vibration gets thread lock.
So yes, the flywheel retaining nut gets thread lock, a drop of medium strength will do just fine.
