Nicolino, thanks for the input. But I hate the idea of coming home any when in February, begging my wife to drive me to places (I don't have a car yet) and to find out that they don't have the stuff I'm searching.
I'm used to learn on manufacturers home pages that certain outlets have their products but than they don't have it in their stores. Dupont dry chain lube should be available at Walmart. I drove 50 miles to the next Walmart and guess what, I ordered it over amazon.
Loctite has more than 1000 products and might 200 tread lockers, my fear is that I will find Loctite but fnding Loctite 542 is likely requiring a good portion of luck.
Same applies to Molykote, they have 1000+ products as well. And the service manual doesn't even specify which. I assume 1000 or P37. Both great anti seizes in my books.
Further I think that the greases from AGIP are nothing designed for a space mission to Mars. So what would be an USA made equivalent ?
Also I found aluminum tape on McMaster-Carr and they have different grades, glues and width of it. So what is Your recommendation ? 2 inch, 3 inch,...
