Default locktite on prebuilt part ??

Hi there
Im doing a slow winter build up the 425 basic kit.
Some of the parts are pre-assembled (head partly pre-assembled etc)
Are they loctited at the factory, or do I need to strip them down & loctite them ??

The only things preassembled are the feathering-shaft and tail grips. Might as well check them.

I dont think you could take all winter. it goes together pretty easily.
