You can have it in two days for less than half of what normal loctite costs at an auto parts store. This is a retaining compound made for mating cylindrical parts in high temp. applications with oil present. You can check it out on loctite.com.
Just check the online store or call him. Hope this helps.

McMaster Carr has it. Here is the info.
91458A79 Loctite 648 Retaining Compound, 10 ml, Green $ 12.87 Each
You can also search the Loctite website for distributors. You are not going to find most of what Loctite has to offer at your local hardware store. You need to go to more specialized distributors.

Blue (242) is removable, Green (609) is for press fits, and Red (262) is for permanent applications.
I’d use Red (262) Loctite just to be safe and hope to never have to take it apart again! That stuff is what it says…PERMANENT.

You would be much better going through a distributor listed on Loctite's site. When you buy the product, make sure it's been stored correctly and within the specified date.
You also have to be very careful about what type you are using for the application. From the data sheet, you can see that the 648 is high temperature retaining adhesive. I think if you look up the data sheet for the red Loctite, you'll find it is not high temperature.
I'd use the one they recommend if you are going to go to all the trouble to do this modification.
