    Are the driveshaft bolts one time use/TTY? Anyone re-use with red loctite?

    Thanks. Service manual says to replace these when disconnecting the driveshaft. Since they’re not TTY and looked good upon removal, I cleaned the threads with a die set and chased the threads in the transmission flange with a tap. I then used blue loctite and torqued to spec. Seems to be holding well and removing the old threadlocker should prevent frozen bolts in the future.
