Loctite 602, or Loctite 620?  Loctite 620 is a retaining compound for

cylindrical assemblies which seems to fit function.   You can find that at

Amazon,, or a bunch of places on the web.  Local NAPA might have

it.  Other auto chain stores could order it for you.

Could it be a typo and you actually need Loctite 620?

Have you done any research on loctite's web site to see if its still available

or if there is a replacement product?  Around these parts (central Hellinois)

I would call Motion Industries/Berry Bearings and have them order some in.  In

your area do a search for a bearing supply house they should be able to get

some for you.

What is the function of Loctite 602? If you know what it's supposed to do, you

can choose something similar.

I'm getting ready to replace the half axle bearings in a Rover axle.  The

ROM says to "smear the shaft in front of the bearing with Loctite 602

compound and also the bore of the new retaining collar."


I can't find it at the local auto parts or hardware stores.  I've searched

the web looking for a vendor, but no luck outside of a couple of places that

will give quotes for large quantities.  Does anyone know of a "small

quantity" source?

Wedge List / Cleaning the fuel tank
« Last post by Tim Greenlee on June 26, 2017, 04:36:12 PM »
When I had my TR8 shipped back to Alabama from Phoenix last January,  The

carrier drove though several days of very heavy rain.  As a result I got my

TR8 delivered with several gallons of water in the gas tank.  I did not know

that I had a bad gas cap.  All my efforts to clean the tank have failed and I

am in the process of removing the fuel tank for cleaning and sealing.   Today

I removed the intank fuel pump I installed in 2013.  After all that time in

ethanol the rubber on the pump mount(Mickey Mouse shaped rubber mount), and

the rubber hose from the pump to the fuel outlet were in great condition.

However, I am going to install an external fuel pump to send fuel to my stock

Stromberg carbs.  It will be much easier to change an external fuel pump when

it fails.  Removing the fuel tank for cleaning and sealing service is a bad

job for an old car guy.  Got a radiator shop that cleans but will not seal,

got some POR tank sealer to complete the job.  Hope to be back on the road in

my TR8 first of next week.
