I hope everyone is enjoying the superb weather.
I am in the final stages of completing my Raleigh Rapide and have a small problem. The right hand gear shifter keeps working loose. It took me while to remember that i had changed the levers 25 years ago because of this but now i need a solution. I can tighten it fairly well with a screwdriver but after a while it works loose - i retighten and it loosens again.
Al-onestare suggested Locktite - will that completely stick the nut? I am reluctant to use this if it make interfer with the actual operation of the lever.
If the problem is caused my worn fittings, i should have some spares to sort it out.
