Can one use an adhesive such as Loc-Tite on an AR gas key instead of staking? Staking is more or less "permenent" but Loc-Tite is not. I use Loc-Tite on my guns for a variety of applications and it works very well, I don't have to re-torque fasteners and I don't get loosening fasteners. I am new to the AR platform though.

Why would you ever really need to remove the gas key on an AR? I think the semi permanent nature of staking is why they do it, because as you said Loc-Tite will allow it to be removed.

Does anyone know of a way to test hall effect sensors without an oscilloscope?

Test it for what? I don't know how you would test it for voltage. But if you want to see if it is working or not just place a magnet over it. On most halls senors that I have ever worked around there was a indicator light that would come on when switch was active. What is it on?

Well, I'm not sure it has any, I don't remember seeing a cam sensor when I did the head gaskets. It's a 3.0 Toyota V6, early 90's, it's having a really hard time starting when it's cold, I've just hit a wall, I've checked for vacuum leaks, tested the cold start injector, tested the temp sensors, tested the spark, tested the maf sensor everything looks good. I was just thinking if it had a cam or crank position sensor that could possibly be causing a problem. But really I'm just out of ideas...

Lol, I don't know what to tell you. You know more than me on that subject.

Eit: and FYI all the hall switches I have ever messed with was on automated machines at work...not vehicles

The problem is... what's your definition of cold?
