I just talked to the Tech Support guys at Lycoming and I was told that the factory uses Loctite C5-A copper anti-seize. Ref: Lycoming Service Instruction No. 1042AG 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.
Be aware that this an eye sees is not supposed to freeze. Consider when shipping.
I am fail to understand , now Lycoming has come recommendation to use Copper based anti seize grease on spark plug threads instead of graphite grease, whereas I am using graphite grease years since 1966 without any adverse effect. Please advice
I've used Champion 2612for years on the spark plugs in my Lycoming engine, but now Lycoming has come out with Service Instruction No. 1042AA which says, DO NOT use a graphite-based compound (emphasis theirs).
