And red thread-lock needs temperatures above 600° F to start loosening up. And my experience with the stuff is that it lasts for decades. I have a trailer hitch that’s been outside for 20 years and the red thread-lock is still holding quite firmly. I’m sure it’ll take a blow torch and impact wrench to loosen up.

Red Loctite is used. One in a thousand will break loose when overtightened.

I wonder if A-P did use Loctite, then they consciously used blue Loctite, rather than red to ensure that, if needed, the Allen bolt could be removed. Red takes very high temps to release.
