I'm putting my Super C back together after sending the head to a shop for some work. Question is does antisieze work on manifold nuts or do they get to hot for it to be worth applying.

Use molybdenum disulfide (silver goo as my wife calls it) it will work at temp. Loctite is a good brand. Jim

I have heard tell that that silver goo was only made in a small batch of around 1/4 cup and all of it you see these days is part of that first trial batch!

I believe you are correct. My empty can continues to provide more than enough to cover everything, every time. Jim

I guess I am the dissenter here. I quit using the stuff after I found it would dry up and was about useless. I went back to gun grease. Yup it dries out too. Though I already have it and don't have to buy it special. It will also work even many years later in a lot of cases.

i have not known seizing to be much of a problem. if you are really concerned use brass nuts. plus these tractors never will see the heat they used to in their hard working days.

That brings a question to mind. My F12 has brass manifold nuts and some Farmall M tractors in Australia have them too. I have one with steel and one with brass. Were brass nuts phased out or was it a wartime economy, which continued after 1945?

I believe it was an attempt to lessen the rust and seizing of steel on steel. I also believe the brass stripped out some, so that is why I use goo. I
got a tin of aero rated Mica based compound that was used on Radial aircraft plugs. It seems to be even higher temp stable than Moly. Jim

Yes, that makes sense to me. I have noticed that the brass nuts generally want replacing after removal. They seem to stretch too, which makes them easy to remove, but not wonderful to refit. I have a friend who might have some goo for aircraft spark plug - might be the way to go.

Well i have used Never SLEEZE Does it work ?????? On items that you regularly take apart like truck brake anchor pins yep it works great there . Exhaust manifold bolts and nuts ????? now here i can not say for sure because usually once you put it together it is not vary often you take it back apart in a couple years . And now as for the new COPPER Never Seeze the Jury is still out on it as myself i just started usen it a couple years ago and have not had to go back in where i used it . It is suppose to have a higher heat resistance then the silver stuff . I use to use the old stuff on exhaust manifolds and turbos . But again i never had to go back in and try and remove one .

In the boiler business we used a lot of never seize.

We had good success with a hi temp white ceramic type.

It would dry out at high temps but left the white powder and we could most always get stuff apart when needed.

The main thing was to get something in the 2500 range.
