Don't be a cheap-o. Buy a bottle with a brush applicator and use it like there is no tomorrow. I put that stuff on threaded connections and hose connections as well. Anything you don't want stuck, use this stuff.

A packet... Made me laugh a little... dammit boy... step up...

HAHA! If I can ever get my pin from my swinging tongue unstuck, I will use a good bit of it there.

You may want to carefully check the tap depth of the holes, thickness of riser at holes, gasket, & lock washer thicknesses as compared to your bolt length. On mine, 1-1/2" long wouldn't work, they'd bottom out in the hole prior to getting tight. I've seen where 1" is often called for, but that didn't look like enough threads to grab for me. I'd get the 1-1/4" length.

I also used a regular hex head style stainless steel bolt. Socket head stainless steel was what came out. Much easier to install and tighten. Of course with some anti-seize.

Yeah, I looked at mine and it looks like the 1.5" is not going to work. I may look into that hex bolt to see if there are any 1.25" bolts. Thanks.

I have half a bottle from the mid-'80s and I'm not sure when that will be used up. Definitely worth the money. I especially like the brown poi that floats to the top if it's not used.

I got the anti seize and some bolts today. I was unable to get the stainless hex cap bolts that I wanted and ended up just replacing like for like. Both HD and Lowes did not have the 1.25" bolts in the hex cap. They went from 1" up to 1.5" but nothin in between. Anyway, I went ahead and put a coat of high temp engine paint on the heads of the new bolts as a little extra insurance as well as stainless lock washers, which seemed to be the main issue anyway. I put a little paint on a couple spots on the risers that had some rust too. Looks better even if they aren't stainless.
