Locktite on flywheel bolts

I removed the old manual shift flywheel from my 360 and noticed the PO had used Red locktite. There was no problem removing the studs with a 1/2 inch electric impact. I was wondering if I should use red locktite when installing the new one.

I would think blue loctite would be plenty. Usually takes heat to break the red stuff loose.

LocTite #242 (blue?) or equivalent is what I use. Without fail.
