Threadlocker or anti sieze?

Servicing my Allison MD3000MH. on removing the filter housing bolts it appears that the last job used red thread-locker.


should I do the same or use anti sieze?


Tx

From the Loctite web site:
Threadlocker Red 271 is designed for the permanent locking and sealing of threaded fasteners.

I doubt if the previous servicing technician actually used red threadlocker fluid you would have been able to remove the bolts without heat.

I would clean everything up and using naked bolts put the covers back on torquing the bolts to the specifications.

Yup, use NOTHING. Just insure the threads are clean and torque per specs on the filter kit instructions.


Be sure to use ONLY the gaskets/O rings what replace what you have in there now. Said another way, the kit will contain more gaskets/O rings than you will use, as the kits fit a number of different applications.

Ya, sometimes the manufacturer will use a rubber type sealant on bolts. But its probably not loctite. Like I said, that stuff it almost impossible to remove a bolt without heating it.

Did any instructions come with the filters?

If you're worried about the bolts backing out you can use silicone gasket maker. It keeps the bolt from vibrating out but you can get it off with hand tools. Just make sure you get all of the oil off of the threads, starting fluid or brakleen works best. Loctite is great stuff in the proper scenario, but it's not for every bolt or nut.

nothing about anti seize or thread lock. Thus the question. mostly only torque specs. But al least a pic if you can't remember what order it went together.



simple job although it took me most of the day. used a drill pump and clear tubing to add the fluid and that worked well. Now hoping that it will work for the motor oil, although it is thicker.
