I think what your talking about is what t we call copper slip in UK, not outrageously expensive here ( and you don't need a lot per job )
Never thought about using it on a head gasket, a good idea though - nice one

Thanks Guys.

It sounds like the grease that gets used on brake assembly.

I really appreciate the fast and very pointed replies .... and I'm off to the local motor factors in the morning!

ll the best,

Hi, been on vacation and just now saw the post.

I'll have to look when I get home.  The stuff I'm talking about comes in an aerosol spray can, is NOT grease or anti-seize, and is very sticky stuff once it's sprayed onto the copper .....
