The fill plug for the middle drive right?

That's what I'm talking about.

Or do you mean the engine oil fill plug?

He means the chrome cap on the side with the 4 bolt holes with the big nut and bearing underneath.

Question brake rotor lockwashers

I was just looking for the gasket but I found one already. Thanks though guys.

On to the next question...
I ordered the brake caliper brackets from pandemonium and sorted out a ton of brake parts I have sitting around. When I took off the rotors most of the "lock washers" on the rotor bolts feel apart. I know I can order them online but that will require more waiting. Anything wrong with loctite or a single lockwasher per bolt?

Hey there,

Blue Locktite and lockwasher is fine. Wish I had known that when I rebuilt mine, those OEM washers were $$ !

I've been running just 5/16 lock washers for years. Locktite might be ok but I would be wary of pulling threads on the aluminum wheel.

I never had one even try to loosen up with just lock washers.

Hi Beast,
I would be worried about the Loctiet in aluminum too.
Did both tabs break ? You could also drill the bolt heads and safety wire them. Make it look really racy then eh!

I've been using single lockwashers with locktite blue for years with no problems. I would be more worried about them coming loose than a problem with the threads. When I need to remove a rotor, the bolts come out no problem and no kind of thread damage, YMMV.

sounds awesome but...

That is a great idea if I had all the toolage for a proper safety wire job. But, I have loctite and lockwashers at home already so I'll stick with that.

If you should decide you want them, Mike's XS has 'em.

Bolt Lock Tabs for Disc Brake Rotor
Thanks man but I already installed with loctite. She's back on the road... WITH a front brake. I got that setup from pandemonium and I'm running the brembo seup but decided to go with single disc instead of dual. I need to get the exhaust swapped out with the 4-1 setup I have sitting in the garage. I have a bit of a popping issue with cyl 4 but other than that she's running great. I haven't had much time to take a look at it but the popping is either an intake or exhaust leak or exhaust issue I'm hoping instead of a hanging valve or something.

I'll have pics of the progress soon but my phone is on the fritz lately.
