Just a note, if you find that you are having to replace spindles, its due to an out-of-balance condition in the lawn mower blades. Simply sharpening regularly does not correct or maintain balance. Balancing in conjunction with sharpening is required for proper lawn mower blade maintenance. Generally speaking spindles should almost never need replacement if the blades have been correctly maintained.

Thank you,
Unless they get water in them.

to answer your question the reason that bolts are hard to remove from a spindle is rust, upon applying the fluid film I found that the bolt did not rust, and removed from the spindle without problem. I see from your title your most likely an engineer, as I also have a background in robotics engineering I did not want to overstate my findings and claim ff is better then anti-seize, but I will state that it did seem to prevent the bolts from rusting therefor making the bolt easier to remove. I call that working. As for if a guy wants to use ff or anti-sieze that is up to them, but try it before you knock it. as for your examples the exhaust manafold I am not sure ff would work as the heat is your major issue, the fertilizer spreader I might act try if I used one often enough to find out it all depends on the application and the results you want.

When I graduated with a degree from engineering I got a job as a robotics engineer for Motorola, not long after I was working for them I had to call my father(who has no degree at all and is a mechanic) to ask him to help me redesign a pneumatic pickup system that was not working. I am the first to admit I don't know everything. All I can do is observe and report.
