In the dive industry we use Christolube which is a halocarbon grease not a Hydrocarbon grease ; it’s compatible with Oxygen. Silicone grease is falling out of fashion..,and we use petroleum grease (Vaseline) on the bearings of the ice cream machines it’s food grade. We never use RTV (Room temperature vulcanising) silicone. Once it’s hardened it will break off and get into the oil stream.. big no no.
Is thus compound a lube or a sealant?
It will work just fine for helping the carbs to slip into the boots/spigots. I usualyuse spray silicone lube to lube the boots/spigots before installing the carbs. It really helps them slide in, and then disapates.
