I don't remember what directions on the tube say but I applied the stuff and then mechanically connected terminals.
That might be a mistake.  Word "dielectic" should've be enough to figure out.  And I remember thinking about that.
I really don't know why I did this way.
But from other hand, if the grease works as sealant and is supposed to be applied on top after mechanical connection is
established, one will have to use solvent to clean contacts each time he disconnect terminals, before re-connecting.  Could be
very annoying unless the contacts are guaranteed to be splashed over - then it make sense.
No questions about the usage on spark plug rubber boots.
