U need to clean the threaded surfaced with alcohol or acetone first and then drizzle some loctite). its never come off after that. Leave it to dry overnight before running the engine.

Don't use just any loctite...use the green stuff.....and use it VERy SPARINGLY...i.e one drop. It will definatel hold as it's much stronger than the red and blue loctite.

Saito 82 Keep loosing muffler

I had a problem with my Saito 80 with black oil on my plane. Although the muffler seemed tight I wrapped the threads with a thin wrap of teflon plummers tape. Problem went away and no more loose muffler. Wrap it clockwise looking at tho open ends.
