Tighten Those Setscrews


Almost all kits are going to be assembled with thread lock on the crucial parts, but it’s still a good idea to double check. The most common spots to check for setscrews are going to be the center outdrives, the motor pinion gear, and the CV axles if your kit comes with them.

To check these parts, simply take the proper size allen wrench and give the screw a slight turn to loosen them. If they give a good amount of resistance and remain tight, then you’re all set. If the screw comes loose slightly, inspect for thread lock, apply if needed, and tighten the screw back into place.
