thanks for the advice...
I did use the anti seize and a tourq wrench, both worked well. Giving Helga the tune up was a blast. However, I'm not sold on those spark plug wires with the metal connectors. I had problems with my last plug closest to the fire wall, I couldn't get the wire to snap onto the plug like the others did. Oh well, I got it on as tight as I could get it, and the car now runs 100% better considering the previous owner hadn't had the spark plugs changed in about 6 years!
