"The best thread lock tight is a cross threaded bolt!", and in some of the older cranks it will jamb down until it locks in place. Most good LBS's will have the taps to do a quick chasing of the threads in the arms and will cost just a bit of change. In normal cases I would chase the threads of a used crank before installing it, just to be sure there are no burrs or the dreaded di-electric brinneling. JMO, MH
