Let me start by saying dumb **** me, I know better.



I had to remove my flywheel while assembling the motor. When I reassembled, I forgot to put blue locktite on the threads.



Simple question, its been running for a few days now ( and runs great.)



Do I strip out the tranny and reinstall the nut with locktite, or just let it be?



Any experience on this would be appreciated.

One of my friends did not use locktite on his and its been fine ever since, but we did use an impact gun to tighten it.

Thanks guys, I have done countless engines and never forgot - until this one. I know that fudger is torqued to 350 ft lbs as I have a torque wrench that can handle that. This part I am clear on as my kid was holding the engine while I was torquing and the dumb **** wasnt paying attention and went flying as i put all 300lbs of me on the torque wrench. In hind site it was kind of funny
