Default input shaft nut

Just wondering, on this repair. Is a new nut absolutely necessary? If so where are they available from (besides a dealer as the closest dealer who will get me parts is 70 miles away in Madison WI) so if the nut(s) can be reused/re tightened it would be nice.
BTW gonna sell the car so if anyone wants more info shoot me a PM. It is my 2001 Sl2. Very clean, new Sonnax VB, radiator and so on. Wold be willing to sell it as is also. Just flat don't have time do deal with it so if I did not have to it might be a bonus

If you clean and prime the shaft and nut according to the locktite directions and use the correct number real high strength locktite you can get away with it. You will have to give it 24 hours cure time before running the car though as quick set is hard to get your hands on.

So what is it with a new nut? Is there some kind of "locking device/substance" on it? I just quite didn't seem to understand why it just could not be re torqued is all

They come with a quick set locktite on them so that if you happen to stop turning it on then it locks. High strength locktite is required.

Got it. I can get my hands on quick set at a supplier near by. So if time permits maybe I can get after it. Thanks

You will need cleaner and primer as well.

One other thing. Where does one go about getting the tool to hold the housing(s)? It dawned on me they would spin without being locked in place. As for the locktite materials I have a fastenal dealer very close by and can lay hands on the stuff with them. Very good and helpful people

I managed to wedge a Phillips screwdriver in long enough to put 111lbs torque on it. I wedged it in one of the small holes on the pulley and slowly turned it until it wedged tight. Then I torque it down!

Be careful with this method - there have been reports of distorted Clutch Pack Drums (Plastic Torpedo's pic).

Yes, and Chazberry is warning you and others that it is not the preferred method. There can and has been damage to the clutch pack drum. If this drum (not a pulley) is distorted even slightly it will lead to shift problems! You haven't had any shift problems, have you?
