Worn Fork Crown Race Seat

I have a carbon fork with steel steerer. After installing and reinstalling a few times, the crown race seat doesn't give a good fit to the crown race. Do I use Loctite to fix this or is there a smaller crown race that I can use? Its a 1 inch steerer. Thanks

It sounds like there is a more involved problem. I would contact the shop or manufacturer of the fork for a detailed inspection.

A good bike shop will have what is called a knurling tool,used on the crown race seat to make the crown race a tight fit again.
