Thread lock is defeated by heat. If you plan on using it in a hot environment, check its heat rating.

In most(hot) applications, especially exhaust, I use the high heat anti-seize.

Engines arent my thing, but here are a couple of thoughts,

Anaerobic setting compounds like loctite can be bought in every flavor imaginable. I regularly use a green (forget the number) high strength high temp variety, and it will take 250°c.

Be carefull of anti seize in applications with dissimilar metals and high temps, it can be very easy to cause an accidental galvanic reaction.

I picked up parts from the local Cat dealer last night. I ended up getting some money back because we ordered (6) individual gaskets but what came in was (6) gaskets that span 2 cylinders each. There was a part number update but the update did not affect quantities.

As far as anti seize they said to use it. also torque the studs to 20 ft lbs and torque the nuts to 35 ft lbs maximum.


I have tomorrow off work because I am maxed out on vacation time and will lose some this month otherwise (actually just not accrue any more). It is supposed to be 89 F here tomorrow so that will be fun. I know, nothing like what you guys down south get haha.

I was able to put everything back together on Sunday but have not yet started it due to battery issues. I have new ones as of last night and plan on putting them in tonight and start it up. The repair was fairly uneventful. I took it slow and paid close attention.

Results to follow.

Now you're skeering me.
I usually regret saying anything like that out loud before I test fire it.

There actually was a little drama.... but I am embarrassed to speak about it so was "uneventful"...

OK so I am a machinist and mechanical engineer and I think I have a pretty decent amount of mechanical aptitude, but I am not a diesel mechanic. I mean if things went differently 20 some odd years ago then maybe but I just do not have as much experience as many of the folks here.

Ok here goes. the repair itself was not too big of a deal. the embarrassing part was that I had the old studs with me, but did not take them in to the parts place nor check the length until two of them were installed when something did not look right.

80 miles round trip later and luckily they did have the right ones, I had that day off for a vacation day otherwise it is not that far from work to get parts.

I chiseled plowed about 4 hours this past Friday with it and punctured a front dual. will find out the price today.

Thanks for sharing. There have been several threads lately noting the importance of taking and verifying the correct parts before leaving the parts store. It is starting to sink into my thick brain!

Yes, the embarrassment comes from the fact that I actually took the old parts, because I have learned this lesson before, and still screwed it up!

The REALLY bad thing is that I am the one that tells everybody to take the old one with you if possible when you go to the parts store.


The tire that is coming this week is a Firestone 18.4 x 34 at $595 plus tube and installation.

The installer I have dealt with many times in the mid 90's at the farm I worked at then. He also knows my father in law well and has done business many times. Good guy and hopefully I can be there when he does the job.

I have helped my dad change a few 18.4 x 38's and I do not really ever want to do that again. It took the better part of a weekend a few years ago when we changed both rears on his 1206 Farmall.
