Default When I put SC bolts back in do I use?

What should I use to put on the bolts? Loctite or should I use anti seize? Thanks

Correct, 19 foot pounds. If your foot pound wrench goes that low use that. I prefer my inch pound wrench when doing anything under 20 foot pounds.

Typically there is a small gap where they don't line up. Most foot pound wrenches only go down to 20 foot pounds, and inch pound wrenches only go up to 200 inch pounds, that'* about 17 foot pounds. But you can go over the 200 a bit.
