    I understand the concept of applying anti-sieze to avoid galling of threads in an aluminum block, but if the stuff gets hard over time, is it really advisable to use? What I don't want to have to do is chase threads though. Hmmm what to do... I have read that using anti-sieze with zinc is better than anti-sieze with graphite...worth a try!!!

    I've just hand-tightened spark plugs. No need to really put your back into it.

    Anti-seize on all the plug threads and dielectric grease in the boots. As you thread the plug in, the anti-seize is naturally pushed up, not down into the combustion chamber. I have never had any issues with it and consider it excellent preventative maintenance.

    Oh, on top of the discounted price from AutoZone, they, in addition, offer a rebate of $2 per plug, so, I will end up getting the plugs for $4.99ea after the rebate. Big difference.....$9.36....$4.99. AutoZone comes thru this time.!!

    Thanks Jeff. I said AutoZone came thru, it's really an ACDelco rebate.

    Torque spec for the plugs on our cars is 11 ft.lbs. That's not a whole lot.
