bolt thread sealant?

I saw someone said to put something on bolt threads for lower bolts on circulating water pump. What should I use?

Also, I saw someone say something about putting something on rubber hose connections to help them come off easier - if you happen to know that too.

Thanks

Never-Seez brand or any similar anti-seize product. A common item at most automotive stores. Works like a charm.

I put this on all the block and riser plugs to keep the threads from rusting.... and come to think of it on the spark plugs too... great stuff. Don't forget the diaelectric grease for spark plug boots and battery terminals...things stay nice and un corroded...

Cool that is what I got. What about the rubber hoses? Any ideas?
