Some of us on Legacy RV-12's are now using Nord-Locs under the 4 screws that hold the Gascolator bowl in place, in lieu of safety wire, during Inspections

Ditto on my 2007 RV7. I check tightness every couple of hours and there's no movement.

... I still like the little nut modification I posted in this thread. It really takes the hassle out of doing the tie-wire job, and doesn't change anything dimensionally. Thanks, Allan --

What about the oil sump finger filter screen? That is the most difficult safety wire install for me. That would save me an hour on every condition inspection. Could you use it with crush washer?

That is a great idea! Hardest location to install safety wire for me, as well. Iíll have to look into sizes available.

No, Nordloc washers will not act as a gasket, and they require fairly high torque to set them relative to the torque used on a crush washer.

I have a Safe-T-Cable - access is still quite difficult. It is much better than pliers, though.

I sent Whirlwind an email this morning asking for their input on the use of Nordlocks with their props. Jay Williams at Whirwind got back to me saying they do not recommend it. No further explanation which was disappointing, but that was their answer. Hmmm.
