where do you get the screw to hold on fan for LSJS 3mm plug?

Didnt find one with my Alpha A4 kit or with the motor or plug, would a regular 3mm machine screw work? Do I need a toothed washer? Thanks for the help-

You should've gotten one with the stock fanunit in the box....same bag the green locktite came in.
Anyway, its a small countersunk head type of screw without a washer.
Whatever you use replacing it with (toothed washer included) make sure it doesn't distort the rotor when you tighten it down.

No locktite on it!
That green stuff was to glue the stock plug to the motorshaft, it's almost permanent!
Don't use it on anything else!
I smear some clear silicone on the threads but the screw holds pretty well without anything.
Thats on a stock power setup.
If you're running a hipower setup(like a LSJS).
Add a dab of CA under the rotor. It helps keep it from slipping.

I used green threadlocker for the plug, and blue threadlocker for the screw, it's not permanent. I've had it come off before. Also, I'd recommend using a flat washer. If you notice, the countersink on the rotor isn't drilled by a machine, it's hand drilled. I had a couple of rotors that aren't drilled perfect and caused the rotor the wobble. The washer keeps it flat no matter how it is drilled.

Thanks for the info, I meant blue Loctite, not the green...

I've read about how strong the greenstuff is.. I found a 3mm countersunk screw fits perfect, will try flat washer also, thanks again-
