Dupont Molykote 111 Compound, certified to NSF/ANSI 51/61.That is creative, I was thinking there is no other anti seize, but I think pipe dope still gets all over everything… as my wrench handles can prove!
You might be overdoing, a little bit goes a long way.Hey folks,
I'm finally done with the Permatex grey death stuff. Looking for something decent for general purpose but specifically for hub to alloy wheel use. Bonus if it doesn't get everywhere like hydraulic fluid or ... well, grey death. Thx
This is the key to success.You might be overdoing, a little bit goes a long way.
That's just it. Sometimes after use it travels with me to work, or to the store, sitting in the park ... it's on the bench, etc... a little bit goes a long way.
Not really a concern, just sometimes would rather choose a product without a poison warning where possible (had plenty of exposure to harmful stuff in the workplace, and outside of)What is the toxicity concern? There are quite a few anti seize offerings and I've used them all but never really noticed much difference between any of them. Be careful using it and handling hardware once applied and it won't end up everywhere.
I use a dry moly spray: https://www.crcindustries.com/products/dry-moly-lube-11-wt-oz.html
I set the wheel on a piece of cardboard so that the hub side is up and spray the dry moly on. It doesn't transfer to your hands nearly as bad once it's dry. Use another piece of cardboard with a circle cut out to protect your brake rotors and you can spray it on the hub as well.
In other applications you can use beeswax. It works surprisingly well at bolts that have a bit of rust, like on the exhaust flanges and O2 sensors. Drive around, get the exhaust hot, park, shutdown and chock the rig, then crawl under with a lump of beeswax and just touch it to the hot bolts or on the threads. It will wick along the threads and help break things loose. I usually let things cool down and then go to town. Much more pleasant than PB, Kroil or the like.
