Derailleur Pulleys/Red Loctite(1 post)

Derailleur Pulleys/Red LoctiteMisJG
Mar 23, 2001 5:31 AM
I purchased some aluminum replacement derailleur pulleys and was reading the installation instructions. They say to use "a red Loctite" on the bolts when assembling. The red Loctite that I bought looks like it will be absolutely impossible to get apart once it has set and that makes me a little nervous about making this swap. Is there more that one strength of red Loctite? Are the aluminum pulleys even worth the bother of making the swap or should I just leave the standard Shimano plastic pulleys in place?
