  • Newbie Install Q's

    Sorry if these sound like dumb questions, but here goes:

    When installing the new check valves in the factory fuel lines, I put the loctite on both sides of the check valve, right? Also, if I loosen the power steering/alternator bracket to be able to get at the front driver's fuel port, do I need to put loctite on those bolts when reassembling?

    thanks in advance...

    On both sides of the check valve? Its a bolt so i don't know what you mean by "sides". Apply it to the treads. And you can apply it to the bracket bolts if you want but likely you won't have enough.

      As Clay said, just liberally coat the threads of the check valve and you should be good to go. If you're like me, it'll be dry by the time you actually get it back in anyways...haha.

      Also, you can probably use the regular blue (serviceable) Loctite on the steering/alternator bolts.

      Good luck!
