I am kind of sorry I asked. I asked for WHAT TYPE compound and didn't want to see this thread degenerate into a urinary olympics! Geesh, what oil is the best to run in a 1996 460? bwhahahaha I think that should point things away from all the controversy about a heat sink compound vs dielectric grease. I am a professional motorcycle mechanic and don't see heat sinks on vintage bikes I work on but heat sink PASTE is intended to readily conduct heat. Dielectric grease is used to insulate electrical connections and doesn't conduct electricity so the purpose of the two are totally different and I suspect the goop I bought (heat sink compound/paste/goop) will work just dandy. I don't do this much so won't have the opportunity to try dielectric grease which I suspect isn't jim dandy for conducting heat and just might melt... not sure, just suspect. And that chart with temps in the 60F range? In an engine compartment? OK.

Coconut oil. Way healthier than vegetable oil.

I bet the toothpaste or peanut butter tastes better than the rest. Dielectric grease would probably clean you out real good. I must be hungry.

Is everyone this clueless, it's simple. Olive oil in the motor (extra virgin is you got the extra cash) 100% pure canadian maple syrup in the master cylinder, raw filtered honey in the power steering, molasses in the differentials ( has to have sulfer) and you top it off with cold bacon grease in all the joints and wheel bearings. Throw a few gummy worms down the trans fill tube every couple thousand miles doesn't hurt either, keeps the trans from slipping. I heard gummy bears work good too but I have no experience using them. This along with the chunky peanut butter and preseves sandwhiched between the ICM and heat sink will make for the most reliable vehicle you have ever driven.

They're original Mercon-spec. None of this Mercon V hocus pocus.

There's this thing online somewhere I can't find anymore about the SF, H gummies.

A customer review of said product.

Falls roughly between tales of Gilgamesh & Alice'e Restaurant about what it wreaks upon one's lower GI.

Hilarious. Not being able to handle SF I can relate.

I, too, am not a sugar free fan, or a fan of artificial sweeteners either.
