I have tried two diferent Loctite bearing retaining compound; 609 and 660 on a Zenoah G26. When taking the crankcase apart I noticed that tapping the crankshaft, and removing the bearings, was very easy. Almost like using no compound. Factory fit is very loose to begin with. The compounds I have tried are no match for the high speed, gasoline/oil, vibration and high temp conditions. If using oil seals it is no big deal. I prefer to use sealed bearing and no oil seals so as to have the crankshaft drag free. The problem is that the bearing/crank loose fit allows some oil/pressure to get its way out of the engine.
Something really tough is required.
I don`t care if it becomes hard to remove... That`s what I want...
