Um... tighten it?

Use a couple drops of red Loctite. Not a lot.

Oh - and welcome to our lil' corner of the Innernets!

I think KBO incorrectly read/saw his post as I did,
"...compensating nut wants to come loose..."

If permanent Loctite was used it pretty much only breaks down under high heat. If you hit the Loctited part with a torch then use and impact gun it will spin off pretty easy.

:blahblah:Diamond Lil you are right of course, these types suffer from low self esteem and subsequently go overboard to demonstrate their worth or normalcy. Unfortunatley many run for public office and manage to get elected:eek:

Hey Jeff, any luck yet? Maybe a bigger impact? I haven't found a nut/bolt yet that'll stand up to my impact at 500 ft lbs of torque.

Don't worry about these folks around here, it seems most of 'em tend to have a screw loose at times. :)

I had a similar problem with a clutch basket on a Kawi/Vulcan, the impact woudn't budge it. I bought a better impact and it came off so fast I thought something broke!
Old impact was 240 Ft Pounds, new impact 800 Ft Pounds, BIG DIFFERENCE!

More heat, The impact hammering could knock the magnets loose from the rotor.
