Another name for it is engine assembly lube. Any auto store should have it.

The manual says to use "molybdenum disulfide grease" on the threads, I called one of the local parts stores and they had no clue what I was talking about. Is there a name brand or some sort of trade name that I should look for? Can I substitute with something else?

Losers. That's what happens when you hire people to sell car parts who know nothing about them. Ask them for assembly lube or an anti-seize compound that's black, as opposed to copper or silver colored.

Yeah a little frustrating. But, the good news is that everything is in and running. Now it is time for a little break-in and then I ready for the trails again! Thanks for the help!
