    Can anyone reccomend when and why to use threadloc(blue/red) over antiseize? I am swapping a Kawasaki motor out on a 99 Scag turf tiger-all the mounting bolts had some corrosion on them, but came out very easy (maybe cause they were covered in oil over the years by a small leak-
    The bolts also had lock washers on them-

    Also, if anyone can provide any torque specs on these mounting bolts it would be greatly appreciated.

    threadlock is for when you dont want a nut or bolt coming out on you, antiseize is so you will be able to remove it easily later on
