Spark plugs and anti seize C70 2004

Hi Klaus and Folks,

What kind of anti-seize?

I still have a tube of lead-based anti-seize, that I'd used on my 240s, yet read on the RWD forum here that some folks use nickel-based anti-seize or molybdenum(?).

I had some spark plug trouble with a prior owner / operator installed thread insert coming out with the spark plug on my 1992 240 a month ago! So, I was able to clean everything up, and the insert threaded back in when I did not want it to. Oh well. Yet got some Permatext brand anti-seize with Nickel in it for the spark plug thread.

Yep, just to snug or a little more. The anti-seize reduces friction so you think it's not as tight as it may be otherwise.

Hope that helps.

Duffed.
