Just pulled out the pinch bolt and the front wheel shaft. I thought both bolts were going to break off they were seized up so tight. I know aluminum is bad about seizing (or maybe its two different metals reacting). What anti-seize do some of you guys use? -carter

Loctite makes a Marine Grade anti-seize that is a bit more water proof than some.



I sometimes use honda moly paste in a pinch.



Permatex anti-seize is available everywhere and works too. I use anti-seize on the spark plug threads, brake bleeders, exhaust bolts etc.

Comes in smaller sizes but I use it everywhere. Good semi-inert metallic formulation but it will take heat and somewhat refuses to bond with anything else as the copper stuff will over time. You can find it in an ounce tube but it's pretty much a one time purchase as a tiny bit goes a long way. I like the brush cap too as makes it easier to lightly coat the threads of the fastener instead of glopping it on and ending up with waste.



The stuff in the auto parts stores are little more than grease, this is what places like Boeing use on their jet engines.

In car-service, where i work, we use Permatex 89464 Copper Anti-seize lubricant Spray (Hi-temp) and Gunk M72502 Squel Medic.

Good, but here we're often dealing with Cadmium plated fasteners going into Aluminum, something you'll rarely find anywhere other than in aircraft. Cadmium was chosen as it's highly resistant to corrosion and has no problem being mated with Aluminum or mild steel. Nickel is similar in that it really cares not for Aluminum not anything else for that matter. Expensive, but the best anti-seize out there.

Carter, +1 on Marshall's advice. I work in the aircraft industry, and the Nickle Loctite is the snchnitz for such applications. I'd be happy to snag you some if you can't find it.

No doubt, I even use it on exhaust components right up to manifold gaskets.
