The first grade is coded Blue Removable No.242

The second grade is coded Red High-Strength No.271 which is applied to fasteners that you dont want to take apart for a long time. When you do want to remove a fastener that has been treated with Red, or Cherry Loctite, you may have to use heat from a torch or iron to loosen its grip when its time to remove the fastener.

third grade, which is dyed Green and is used on fasteners or studs that you dont want to ever remove, like cylinder studs or exhaust studs.

i'd do blue.. happywink

Yep, Loctite will work or you can pull the rubber boot cover up and under it is a four sided bolt head, which can be tightend just a little. I used the red loctite and someone still took it, so I lifted the rubber boot and tightend it with a wrench. I can't remove it, because it's not finger tight anymore, it's wrench tight. Remember tighten just a little with the wrench or you will strip the threading. The boot fits right back on the four sided bolt and will not fly off while driving at high speeds. thumbsup
