Loctite 270 equivalent?

Hi folks,

I'm about halfway through my rebuild of my front axle corners and happened upon the recommendation to use Loctite 270 on the stub axle bolts. The reasoning for the 270 specifically (I suppose) is that it's supposed to both provide a good block for oil to leak past the swivel housing and also provide a resistance to backing out.

I've got Permatex 29000 (green) on hand, but it doesn't seem like it's the same sort of product.

What do people use in lieu of Loctite 270 or instead of that, what would you recommend for affixing the sub axles to the swivel housing? (Note: Loctite 270 is used *a lot* through the land rover shop manual...)

Edit: and it's VERY difficult to get in the US!

Use 262 for now and order some 270 off eBay?

270 is obselete, which is why you can't find it

From: Designed for the permanent locking and sealing of threaded fasteners - Henkel

LOCTITE 263 is the recommended replacement for LOCTITE 270™.
I personally use loctite blue on all my external fasteners (but I'm crazy)
