Loctite OR Anti Seize Lubricant

Will be installing a new engine and transmission in my 68 soon.

I have read some members state that if it has threads they hit it with anti seize lubricant?

I suspect some bolts should get loctite instead?

What are the basic rules?

Number one if you are threading into aluminum or stainless steel I think you would use anti seize.

Anti seize on thing like spark plugs and other threaded fasteners that will be remove. Locktite on fasteners like flywheel and clutch bolts

Re: Loctite OR Anti Seize Lubricant

Also there are different types of Loc-tite. Be sure you use the right one for the job
Blue - light duty, can remove if needed - kind of like a nylon locking nut
Red - medium duty, must heat with propane torch to remove(most widely used)
Green - heavy duty, permanent - DO NOT use this anywhere on your car!

Anti-seize on anything removable. ALWAYS use when you have 2 different materials going together such as a stainless bolt into sheet-metal, standard grade bolt into aluminum, etc. Case in point, my brother bought a billet aluminum drop hitch for his truck and put a steel 1-7/8" ball on it. A year or so goes by and he wanted to change out the ball to a 2" to borrow my trailer. Didn't use anti-seize in the ball shaft or the threads. Even though we got the nut loose about 1/2 way before the threads were destroyed using penetrating lube and heat, that ball was not coming out! It became a challenge and I broke out the old oxy/acetylene torch to do some damage. I had it in a vise and the hitch and ball cherry red and it still would not budge. The metal ball shaft and aluminum "fuzed" itself together. At that point it was chalked up at a loss before we heated it to oblivion - it won!
