Default Re: Ins and Outs (perhaps?) of Red Threadlocker

I know that you are not full of poop, Buzzard.
A now long gone friend of mine used to do design and prototype fabrication for NASA, Northrup-Grumman, Lockheed-Martin and a few other aircraft companies.
He taught me to use Milk of Magnesia whenever threading stainless steel fasteners into aluminum cases. It stops any and all dissimilar metal corrosion that will occur, makes for a good anti-seize in harsh conditions, and where a "wet" torque may be specified in an assembly, it lubricates the threads to obtain that torque.
