"1. If applied to attaching heads to our Corvair motors, your method
would likely result in multiple studs ripping out of the crank cases.
The additional stretch of the nut/stud interface would transmit to the
stud/crank case with disastrous results. Never lubricate these threads."
I live in the rusty easy and have been using Anti-Seize on Corvair head
nuts for over 35 years. I DO check the studs before installing heads by
using pipe spacers and torque the nuts to 35 ft-lbs. If they pass this
test, then I put the head on, Anti-Seize the threads and torque to 30-33
ft-lbs depending on year.
And despite the west coasters on many forums saying I will loose my
wheels, I also use grease/oil/Anti-Seize (whatever is close by) on lug
Worked for me on thousands of cars.
