I am in the middle of refitting my Hawk Sport. Noticed my tail input shaft has wear marks that only the ID of the bearing spinning on the shaft (bad thing) could have put there. Do you guys use locktite in that spot? What other "special" spots do you all locktite?

Be careful not to allow loctite to infiltrate bearings.

Also, I would normally not loctite the bearings that support the main mast since it will be very hard to pull it out in case you need to.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

clean the surfaces first with rubbing alcohol, (and don't drink it ),

I have had the black coating wear off, the shaft can be used again if only the black coating has worn off but in this case I would suggest Locktite,, if the shaft has worn then be weary of your bearing (s) too,,

when you refit,
make sure there is no back and forth movement in the shaft, but at the same time make sure there is no real pressure (preload) on the bearings from the Gear and Drive Coupler,,

the tighter that preload on your bearings the faster your bearing will wear, I try to get that preload pretty light with no back and forth movement in the shaft,, I use this method at both ends on the torque tubs..
