Default Oh No!!!!!!!!!!

So I was making an adjustment to my Lloydz ATS and was tightening up the adjustment bolts when one decided to strip. I put some blue loctite on it and closed her. Will this be ok? What should I do different?

Drill out, tap out, helicoil....I can't imagine how that happened. When I put mine in I was impressed with how sturdy the thing was. Don't use a breaker bar when tightening...

What part gave way? The bolt or the wheel?

A little late for the Locktight, and this bit of advice, but get a torque wrench and learn to use it. Never tighten anything without it again. Really.

IMHO one would really need to be getting ham fisted to strip one of the adjustment bolts, and they do have a strange fell when getting too tight, so you may be ok. Problem is you will end up losing sleep (perhaps for good reason) so taking out the offended bolt and hoping that was what was giving, then get a new bolt at the local hardware store, or where ever Lloydz tell you to. Call them and ask, they may have some better advice. Personally I wouldn't run it till I was sure, but that is just me.

Good Luck.

I was just using my 1/4 drive socket! Will the blue loctite hold it in? Maybe I should just put my stock one back in until I fix this one?

I would remove the stripped bolt at the very least , you don't want it falling into the engine .... Call Lloyds , he may just send you a new one .

Yeah I think I will just remove the Lloydz wheel for now and use my stock one until I get this taken care of properly. I would not want that bolt coming off and destroying things. Thanks for the advice guys.
