Thanks....I meant to note that I intend to reuse the old bolts and just apply loctite .....is that Ok to do ?.. The bolts are the  ones that attach to the crankshaft carrier to hold the chain guide and black plastic oil separato

I used the 243 (medium strength and can be loosen by hand tools) on the reused bolts when I rebuilt my m96. As long as those are not torqued to yield (torque + angle), it should be OK to reuse. 263 is the red threadlocker that will require applying heat to loosen. Should not be needed for m96 rebuild.

Hi again


When I asked this forum about their recommendations I had already logged a message with Pelican Parts on the micro encapsulated bolt issue. 


I was more than happy with the two responses I received from this forum. For that many thanks.


I wish I had not asked Pelican !!. They just came back to me saying;


....... Best practice is to replace them with new microencapsulated ones. None of us have enough experience with reusing them to make a solid recommendation. 


I intend to take your technical advice but thought you should know what Pelican had to say. .

I'd trust Ahsai on this one.  There are some that would have you do a lot of excessive things.  "Best practice" would be to never reuse any fastener, but it's impractical for all but factory race teams.
