Re: Is locktite Conductive?
LockTite is NOT conductive, and in fact, is a pretty good insulator.
LockTite is INSIDIOUS in a joint/connection you want to use as an electrical connection.
When it solidifies, it partially crystallizes and pushes into places that would normally be a connection point.
When it's heated, it liquifies and 'hydraulics' it's way into places that would normally be connection points.
I hate to be a nag, but SOLDER, SOLDER, SOLDER...
Solder is the only reliable electrical connection.
Use star washers where you can't solder...
Tim is correct, and I've done that very thing myself.
Smash shut a piece of copper tubing, use some brass screws and nuts, and make your own ground buss that is SOLDERABLE!
Can't break (or beat) a ground a soldered ground connection.
Solder in your brass screws to the tubing and you don't have to worry about the darn screws turning when you are trying to put nuts on them or a connection problem from loosing or corrosion...
Make sure you use a good size wire for your dash ground so you don't wind up with a 'Ground Loop' thing going on...
With all the dash lights, gauges, switches ect that ground there, you need about a 10 Ga. primary ground to hook up your buss.
