Primer Chute Screws

On the XL750, what flavor of Loctite or equivalent is used on the screws for the primer chute? I have heated the housing up to 125F and it still twists my Snap-On 3/32 allen key a full 90 degrees and does not budge. Drilling them out won't help if I still have threads permanently glued to the housing threads. I have the press dismounted and laying on its side with the handle down for maximum access to the heads but I am still getting nowhere. I am at the point that frustration is likely to make me do something stupid and irreversible.

RE: Primer Chute Screws

Not a bit of Loctite to be found. They were apparently torqued with a train axle wrench.

One came with a long arm hex key and between 140 and 160F and the other I needed the heat and an Eazy-out but they are removed. At least I never would have had to worry about them coming loose, ever.

RE: Primer Chute Screws

My XL750 has no loctite on anything. I had it completely disassembled and re-assembled over the weekend with no issues.
