Lawn tractor? Did you see donyboy's video on removing a seized PTO? Very thrilling and he uses the anti-seize again!

I use to use graphite Never Seize on axles and such but switched to synthetic grease. Cheaper and not necessary. I use Never Seize on car lug nuts, head bolts, muffler bolts, and bolts that will seize up.

I use never Seize on back side of rims where they mount on the hubs. I never use on lug nuts as harder to keep them tight as I change winter rims and summer rims.

I've used this kind of Never Seize for decades. I've not heard of doing this before, but it makes sense. I'm guessing the reason I've never thought of doing something like this is that in over 50 years of snowblowing in heavy snow country, I've never had to remove a wheel.

Pertaining to lug nuts: Years ago (and for many years)I used to put a dab of synthetic grease on the wheel studs for the reasons mentioned here. I've since been told, and have read, you shouldn't do that with the torque specs for disc brakes these days. I have a couple vehicles that only call for 90 pounds...none over 110. It's not like the old drum brake days when the big boys at the tire shop put the torque to them and you had to have a breaker bar with you to get them off.

Lower torque on the lugs is the result of all the aluminum wheels and either deforming or cracking under high torque.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.

If you use Never Seize on axle shaft, why is it we don't use it on auger shaft. I guess the auger shaft needs more attention and ease of use with zerks?
