Oh, I understood why anerobic vs. regular, but wondering how to avoid getting grease in the sealant since it goes right on the joint surface ... guess I will just be careful to keep the mating surface clean. Obviously I wasn't planning on skipping it, I drove 20 miles to the NAPA to get the right stuff.
