Default john deere hub

This is a hub off of a tractor. I was bolted together with nine 5/8" bolts which were striped out. The owner wanted them drilled and taped for 3/4" fine which I did but by going with the 3/4" bolts there wasn't enough room for a socket on the new bolts so I had him get socket head cap screws and they should work fine but being where they are they are hard to tighten. I am going to use grade eight flats for the bolts. I made a adapter out of a allen wrench along with a stub allen so he can use a ratchet wrench to snug them up and tighten with the adapter. My question is does he have enough time to use locite on the bolts before it sets up?

I think the blue and red lock tight usually takes about 20-30 minutes to set up. At least that’s about the time we have to take something back apart if need be at work, before having to break out the torch.

It is an aneorbic product which cures in the absence of oxygen, so until you remove the oxygen it will not cure.
