2006 also has a lock washer and large nut on the countershaft. In Australia I have always got a different type of lock washer than when I order in the USA. Using the Australian lock washer, you can bend the washer over the large nut (after fixing to correct torque and using loctite). This ensures the nut does not come undone. Take a couple of the lock washer as well.

I use Loctite on everything. If I don't use it, I lose the bolt/nut.
That lockwasher idea is interesting, wonder if it is the same size as the lock washer(bendable) on the clutch?
