Perhaps wire the setscrews?
His engine shaft is easy to heat and put on a puller if using loctite.
Interesting but seems a bad idea to use loctite on a propeller shaft coupler where you have little room to work. I need a new coupler and will get a split coupler. I think they work better with old shafts where the shaft end might be worn.
