Anti Seize

New to the Forum, been Jeeping for more years then I can remember (maybe from head hitting roll bar too many times)

I see that there seems to be a lot of fellow Jeeper's having a hard time getting old bolts off but nobody suggesting using anti seize when putting them back on. I live for this stuff, I would buy it by the drum if it was available. Just saying.

Jeep on.

I just got done with a frame off of my TJ for rust repair. Dozens of fasteners removed, cleaned, re-tapped, and replaced with Never Seize. The stuff is awesome.

I also use the stuff. Many different types out there, I have read NOT to use it on spark plugs. I really don't understand why, I use it anyway. I also have a high concentrate of Moly/nickle anti-seize for anything splined.

It is ok to use on spark plugs if you keep it on the upper half of the threads. Some of the threads make it into the combustion chamber and you don't want it in there.
Not normally needed on cast iron heads but most aluminum cylinder head manufactures recommend it.

Yeah, I never though coating the electrode would do any good anyway.

And that stuff goes a long long way. I have a can of Selligs, from 1979, and there's still a bunch left in it, and I use it a lot. Like every time the tires get rotated, all the wheel studs get a coat.

Is there any place you shouldn't use anti-seize? I've heard people say that it could allow some bolts to back themselves out, and you shouldn't put any thread coating on them. Like--wheels?

I use it all the time, tests have shown you get more accurate torque readings as well if you are using a torque wrench for specific bolts. Also less chance of messing up threads.
I use it on spark plugs too, but very small amount.

Haha so true! No matter how careful you try to be. I'm covered in the stuff after work usually.

Used it on wheels for years, never had one back off.
Fwiw, the local Cat mechanic has to buy his own, and he told us "I
cut mine 1:1 with 30 weight oil, and has had the same result as straight anti sieze."
