Jeep Shift Knob Install - Quick & Easy But... March 10 2015, 0 Comments

So... this time I braced my legs on either side of the shifter, and grabbed onto the knob with a tight grip. I then pulled as hard as I could. Guess what? - I did not need to call in my stand by. It popped off on the first yank!
The next step was to slide the new Drake Shift knob onto the shaft. Then the directions stated to use the original screw removed to tighten it onto the shaft. This was a little confusing since I never removed any screws from the old knob.
I was informed that I needed a set screw, so I posted the question on a Jeep forum asking where I could get such a screw and what size. Well... needless to say my blond moment didn't last too long. After looking at the knob again and inspecting the two holes that are under the rubber tread I had a "Duh" moment. The set screws were all ready in the knob. All I needed was a small allen wrench to tighten it on. Thank goodness I was able to delete my question from the thread as I felt pretty stupid not seeing something so easy.
Now the question is should I use some of the blue Loctite threadlocker to keep this screw from rattling loose?
