use locktight to i had a couple of the threaded inserts rust up and spin. if they spin they aren&#39;t to bad to fix, but still easier to locktight.[/b]
How do you repair an insert that is spinning??

I would not recommend using lock tight on the bolts.... what i use is anti-seize so the bolts won&#39;t gall the threads, and also torqueing them down in increments 7 lb then 9 lb then 11lb in a star pattern.... just my .02 cents[/b]
Anti-seize would work to.

to do it you&#39;ll need
Three 6-32 1/2" long set screws
A number 36 drill bit
A 6-32 tap
an allen wrench for the set screws
blue or red loctite, i used red

First drill three holes, (use the number 36 drill bit) around the spinning insert, like my three red dots in the pic, get the drilled holes as close to the insert as you can so that your hole just barely touches the metal. As your drilling, the carbon part of the wheel will be really soft and easy to drill, you&#39;ll hit a metal shoulder of the insert about 3/8 of an inch down that will drill noticeable harder. drill just far enough down that you go through the shoulder and you can feel the soft carbon on the other side, don&#39;t go to far past the metal shoulder or you might go through the inside of the wheel and it probable won&#39;t hold air any more, your holes will be a little deeper than 1/2". after you&#39;ve drilled the holes tap them for the set screws. then put the set screws in with loctite so that the tops of the screws are just barely below flush. when your done the insert shouldn&#39;t spin anymore.
