We have a debate going on in a boating forum that I participae in regarding using an antiseize compound on spark plugs when installing the plugs into an aluminum head. I understand that this is a normal practice on aircraft engines. Could someone shed some light on this subject.

I did do a Google search on the subject and came up with about an even plit for and against. What I would really like to find is a manufactuer of engines, antiseize, or spark plugs that recommend its use.

Any assist would be appreciated.

Tight Lines,
Aubrey

Lycoming says to "use a copper-based anti-seize compound or engine oil on spark plug threads starting two full threads from the electrode, but DO NOT use a graphite -based compound".
