loctite q

i loctited the elbows for the macroline on my gz (blue loctite) and i gassed it up and theres no leaks or anything, but i just wanted to know, do i ever have to reloctite the elbows, or will it stay like this until i take the loctite off?

I usually redo them after a good while. It's probably not completely necessary, but I actually heard a couple very small leaks just before I reapplied.

It doesn't take long, and you're just being safe, so why not?

Yes, a safety pin will work. Also try to rub it off with a towl + water.

I would not recommend using red loctite. It is a more permanent threadlocker; usually a good bit of heat and pressure is required to break the seal.

y0da's post puzzles me a little bit; usually red loctite can't be removed so easily. But I suppose it's plausible due to applied thickness, etc.

It's up to you in the end. If you don't feel like removing the macroline fittings for a while, go for it. But I'd recommend picking up some blue loctite in the future.

Blue loc-tite will work fine. When you use blue loc tite - just make sure you put the fitting nice and snug. But red is stronger. Most people f@#k up with the red because they put too much of it on the fitting and crank down on it or they forget to heat the loc-tite before trying to remove the fitting. Blue loc-tite you will be able to take off the fitting without heating - which is good hehe!

I'm not sure about red-loctite. When I got my Intimidator, It had some hoses with 90* elbows attached to an asa and Gen-x reg with red-loctite. The connections with the reg & asa I was easily able to remove with my hands and some pliers (to grip the elbow). The elbow to hose connections I couldn't remove. I still haven't removed them cause I don't need those hoses.
I guess it might be how the loctite dries or the material it is on. I'm not sure...
But I use blue loctite on everything. Works well and can be removed. I haven't had a problem with it wearing away.

Red lock tight when installed correctly on very clean accurate surfaces can be quite permanent. blue is the better tool for the job.
