Manifold Question

Hello All,

My manifold adjustment screw unscrews during every practice, i noticed every time i put it at flush, or one turn in from flush after practice its backed all the way out lol.... all of the factory lock tite is gone, i guess the previous owner adjusted it too much...Anyway has anyone ever had this problem???
If so did you put a tad of locktite on the manifold screw??

Thanx

A nylon thread locker would probably do the trick, if your not comfortable using loctite.

edit: Nevermind on the nylon... I dont see the harm in a small bit of loctite... small.

you can put loctite on the screw while its out and let it dry. Then it will act like it has teflon tape on it all the time. also use the non permanent loctite (blue i think)
