Jim, I yield to a greater knowledge. I should have mentioned that the stainless will not have the tensile strength of steel. They will stretch if tightened too much. As you said though, if the torque is not required beyond a good seal, it should be fine. To be on the safe side, the anti-seize may be the better way to go. My bad. I stand corrected.
