96 xlt recoil

I just rebuilt my recoil on my xlt and I'm having a problem with the screw that holds it down. When I tighten it all the way the rope wont pull but if I back it off a little it pulls fine. I'm afraid of the screw falling off on the trail from bumps and sort. It has a new spring and rope.

Put a drop of Loc-tite on it.

I was thinking about trying that or a locknut but the dealer said no way that it needs to be tight or it will end up coming off and blowing up my motor but id rather listen to you guys than a dealer.

Use blue Loc-Tite and let it dry first, then screw it in to where it needs to be.

You will be able to get the nut off.
That's why you use the blue as it is softer and is made for small bolts.
If you do not have any or can't get any, you can also use nail polish to lock the nut.
