Spacers - lubrication!!
« on: 30 June 2020, 14:19 »
Hi all have been brave and fitted spacers! However on my old focus st some form of copper slip or the like was added in between to stop / reduce the chance of permanently sticking together! I have had this happen once and spent ages with chisels trying to pull apart. What do you lot normally use? Thanks all.

MOLY-Lit is what we use in the oil industry for mating flange faces to each other where you really really need the anti seize properties and anti mating . It’s the best on the market. Bar none
