Anti -seize or assembly lube.

Recommended Posts

I use anti- seize on most everthing I take apart and put back together. I was just reading one of the motocross rags and they were doing the top end on a rmz250. They state thet they use assembly lube on the nuts and bolts. One better than the other? Just looking for opinions.

Good question. In my years of Aircraft Maintenance, it may help...

Assembly Lube: Its for inside the Engine....Just enough lube for that first start...until the oil can do it's trick..doesn't work well in an exposed environment.

Anti-Seize: For the outside...Made to last longer, can cause problems on bearing surfaces...It won't break down as easy from environmental factors....

anti-sieze = nuts and bolts

assembly lube = cams and bearing surfaces

assy lube would be ok for nuts and bolts but it isn't designed for that use like anti sieze is.

I know that assembly lube isn't actually designed for use as an anti-seize, but I've found it works much better on nuts and bolts than the typical anti-seize paste. It doesn't harden and wont affect torque values as much IMO. 😢
