Default Pilot Bearing. Loctite it in?

Should I loctite my pilot bearing in?

Previously, my massive peni i mean my car erupted it from the flywheel, causing mayhem and pushas.

So why would this be bad.

Because it's unnecessary. Press it in perfectly straight like it's supposed to be, gently lift it into place, torque it down, align your clutch plates with your tool, place your pressure plate on the pins, torque the pressure plate bolts, remove your alignment tool, bring the transmission into place, turn your output shaft to align the splines with the clutch plates, ease it into place, bolt it down, and DYNO YOUR ------- CAR.

LOL - there should never be an instance - even with eleventy billion dp - where your pilot bearing is not firmly held into place.
