    Spark plug seal grease.

    O.K. I was too cheap and lazy to get DOW 111 grease for my spark plug boots last year "where the boot / seal , meets the valve cover". I used superlube synthetic instead. I noticed it is more or less solidified now, so I'm wondering what you guys use as a substitute or if the Dow111 is the only way to go. I would love to find something I can pick up at the local auto or home store.

    I also used the super lube silicone grease, when it would get chalky or dry out, I`d just clean and apply more...
    Dow 111 is great stuff tho... a tube goes a lonnnng way...

    Or search Ebay for Dielectric grease, that's the stuff to use.
