ram replacement

ok so i got my new ans mini-ram today along with the pump rod and went to install it on the gun, but when i put the ram on i realized one important thing... in order for my barbs to be in the right position the ram will not tighten all the way down... so question is that am i supposed to use loctite on this thing to hold it from turning?

The ram doesn't need to be tight. The rear hose will keep the ram from spinning. If you really want it to be tight you can use an oring as a spacer.

I usually use just a small touch of blue locktite. A little tiny bit goes a long way.

Put o-ring on it then screw it on. Might end up right where you want it and it keeps it tight.
