    Anti seize???

    There is a thick, tacky, black grease type coating that works as an anti-rust and anti-seize. It may be, I don't know, thus the inquiry. The p.o. of some equipment I have used it. One thing was a steering wheel shaft and nut, another was lug bolts on a wheel disc. It doesn't dry up or get hard, doesn't allow a tightened nut or bolt to loosen, but prevents rust like nobody's business, and one can readily disassemble after 20 years sitting outside. Anyone know what it is, is it still made, and where I might find it?

    I use what is called Never Seize made by Locktite. Does exactly as described but is silver in color. I think Amazon sells it as well as local farm/auto parts stores in my area. Great stuff.

    I second that. I use it alot of it from wheel bolts, to regular nuts and bolts, to shafts and bearing installations.

    I like the Loctite copper anti seize. Have used it for as long as I can remember (which sometimes ain't too far in the past).
    After pondering on it for a while I think what I'm looking for is a graphite axle grease.
    It would have the properties that I see including the viscosity, anti seize, longevity and hard to wash off one's hands.
    Found what I am looking for and can get it at my local Fastenal https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JRT97X6...ing=UTF8&psc=1

    I've heard of that, but never used any.

    I have used Stockholm tar, otherwise known as Pine Tar which used also to seal wood and used as a veterinary care product, as an anti seize compound to keep the steering tie rod ball joint ends from seizing in the threaded tie rods on Caterpillar haul trucks. On these, the threads were 1½" by 12TPI and seized up frequently as these trucks were working in very wet conditions. We also wrapped the threaded joint in a greasy waterproofing tape called Denso tape to seal the joint further.
