I believe my crank gear nut keeps loosening up. Can we add loctite to jeep this from happening?

If you mean the crank arm attachment bolts or the crank gear spindle locknut, yes. It should already have had blue loctite on it. Red loctite is NOT recommended.

No. But the one that holds gear on gear shaft. The one you need small spanner wrench for.

That would be the crank gear spindle lock nut.

"I believe my crank gear nut keeps loosening up." Just curious Edr, does it loosen or do you suspect it loosens?

 

I have not heard of that nut loosening. The older 201 units have left hand threads. Newer units, 401 and 501, are right hand threads. Strange to hear of your issue.

It's has been listening up in the past . This time I cleaned all the grease up and used blue loctite . Hopefully that will work. I didn't get a chance to take it out yet. Next will be red loctite i guess

Blue loctite should do the job. Like NOG Admin said above, don't use red.

In order to remove the red you have to heat the applicated areas to 550F. At that temperature you will change the temper (hardness) of the steel. So, you CAN get it apart, but you'll wreck (by weakening) the part and any related parts in the process.
