My Align motor came with the top mounting plate loose. What should I use to attach it? I don't know if CA would work with how hot it gets and I don't want to send it back for another one because it will take more than a month to get a replacement.
Thanks,
-Mike

You can use some locktite that should work red or blue or even the green that came with the kit.

A common issue. Use the green locktite and it will stay together.

Yeah, mine did that too when I was trying to install it with screws that were too long (good tip for opening up the motor, BTW). All I had at the moment was thick CA. It has held so far. I would suggest you use high temp red Loc-Tite, though.

I hope we don't have to worry about our motors coming apart? That part that is loose is the part that mounts it.....not good!

It would be smart to wick some green locktite into the motor seams.

I put a few drops of the locktite that came with the kit on an Exacto blade. Then applied to both of the seams on the motor and let it sit over night. If you haven't installed the motor yet, it would be a good idea to take it apart and apply the locktite to the mating surfaces and then reassemble.

So far, I haven't had any trouble with the motor coming apart.
