Andrew, the springs that are supposed to hold the limit screws in
place are likely not to be long enough. I have tried to use Blue
Locktite but can't get it to work like the stuff on many factory
parts. Looking at these parts it appears that you have to put a single
drop of the blue onto the screw and to let it dry for about an hour
before using it. But instead of getting a tighter screw fit the damn
things always are way too tight. And it's hard to get a single drop at
a time from the tube. Hard you got some hints about this?


Beeswax has worked well for me as both a thread lubricant and to resist
unscrewing. My hunch is that it stabilizes the threads against
vibrations.


I'll keep that in mind since I have some chain wax here which would work the same.

Thanks for the help. I just needed a much longer screw than I was expecting.. The screw has the spring and some Blue Locktite on it. I also but a little lock nut on from the other side to help stabilize and secure the screw. The screw is not going to move and the gear train is working well.

I also threaded a little lock nut on the screw from the other side of the front plate of the derailleur to help stabilize and secure it. The screw is not going to move and the gear train is working well.
