HI I have a Elite 175 X mini compressor and the cam had unscrew from the motor shaft and I've tried using loctite on the threads and let it set over 24 hours before turning it on again and the darn thing unscrew again how can I keep this from happening again I'm uploading a couple of pictures to show what I'm referring to. thanks for your help.

Thanks for the post!

Can you take a photo of the shaft threads? This would be helpful.

I know it's a tight space, hopefully you can get a clear shot of them.

Thank you for the additional photos.

It is strange why the cam keep un-threading itself from the motor shaft, I haven't seen this particular problem before.

If the Loctite didn't do it, I would use JBWeld as long as you don't mind making the connection permanent. This would do it.
