3/16 Taper Pins for Reversing Shaft Assy.

Gentlemen, I'm just about to complete the Reversing assembly on my 7 1/4" Hunslet, can you advise do I use Locktight on the pins when assembled or simply drive them home ?

There is no need for anything on taper pins, be they Imperial or Metric, the taper will hold them. They don't even need to be driven home very hard, a couple of sharp raps is usually enough.
