Default Lock tight

Anybody use a dab of lock tight when installing the crank pulley bolt? Or is it best to just torque it down?

True until someone has to undo it. It depends what grade loctite is used. Some come apart fairly easily with hand tools while others require heat to get them to release.
Personally, I wouldn't bother using it in this application but it's your car.
