It fills any gap it finds and if they are loose there are gaps to be found.

No. There are number of different Loctite thread and sleeve retaining compounds and they have different performance characteristics: cure rate, gap fill limit, shear strength, max temperature, chemical/solvent resistance, activator/primer requirements, ease of disassembly, etc. For example Loctite 641 has a shear strength of 940 PSI and maximum gap fill of .2 mm, Loctite 609 has more than double the shear strength at 2300 PSI, and Loctite 660 has a shear strength of 2400 PSI and a maximum gap fill of .5 mm.
[quote:8e23486ebb="hotdawg22"](quoted from post at 08:53:23 05/06/13)My question is: what is the most common sleeve retainer to use when replacing the sleeves.
I prefer Loctite 620. It is a high shear strength (2,500 PSI)/high temperature (230C) compound. Maximum gap fill is .2 mm (.008"). I have used it on "slip fit" sleeves and it works well - almost too well. Once it cures you won't get the sleeve back out without a LOT of heat or a boring bar. If you have a really sloppy fit it isn't going to work as well and you might consider something with a greater gap fill. You can find the technical data sheets for all of the various products on the Loctite web site.
