Hmm... not a locking compound?  Seems to me that 242 would be a better
idea.  This would also mean that I torqued mine about right at 500-600
since it would be 1.976*350 = 691.6 Nm *with lubricant*.

I also thought, and I could be totally wrong on this, that they sold
all the lubricating products under the Permatex name.

Does it really contain Teflon?  If so the Teflon's not doing anything
useful any more than it does in Slick 50...
