Default Anti seize grease

1991 Nissan d21 base 5 speed manual. Is it ok to put a little bit of anti seize grease to the drain and fill plugs of the rear differential and the 5 speed transmission? I just want to make it easier to remove next time.

I would think so...

This would allow the proper torque to be applied with the grease to help the threads slip together without binding and potentially causing a leak. Assuming the threads are clean and sharp.

I'm sorry, I don't see a benefit. When do you expect to have to deal with these again? 10 years? 20?

Tape them for leaks and let it be. Is this not what happened from the Factory?

Thatís a good question how frequently do these fluids need to be changed?

I'd do anti seize. Even if it is every 20 years it could save quite a bit of headache.

The factory probably used thread sealant, or a pre-coated plug.
I say go for it.

I changed the trans/rear end fluids in 2019. I bought the 89' in 2k and suspect everything was original then. I've not done much, in this regard... or had to do much! But then I don't race the 89'... it's a (light) work truck and has moved me twice. All depends on ones driving habits and maintance schedule, I suspect. (oh, and was your truck built on a Monday or a Friday? lol)

HTH...
