Hi everyone

I finally got around to opening my gearbox and tightening the grub screw.
I'm not 100% confident about my efforts, but I managed to clean and loctite the screw without removing any of the internal components!
I must admit that made it difficult to apply loctite to the female threads..
I've been trying to source loctite 573.....it's listed on the loctite uk site but the australian website does nit list this product!

Does anyone know if it's available in australia and if not, what is a suitable substitute?
All responses will be appreciated...

Thanks

When I rebuilt my water/oil pump, I usedPermatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker to seal the interface between the pump and block. The recommended sealer is Drei-Bond 1209. The Permatex product worked very well. Others have recommended Loctite 515 Master Gasket after first priming the mating surfaces with Loctite Primer T for the same application. You can investigate these choices for your application.
