Default Loctite selection


I'm final-installing those fuel and brake lines and want to use Loctite on the AN fittings, in both systems. What is the recomended Loctite series for the job, and are there good (but less expensive) brand names that would be equally good?

As far as I know, AN fittings are to be installed dry. For the pipe thread fittings, I used ezturn (fuelube).
