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.
