Well, based on the responses recieved, I will use some anti-seize compound.
 However a new question has arisen that needs an answer.  Some have
mentioned that the studs should be bottomed out in their holes.  This is
contrary to what I was told previously.  Seems like if you bottom the stud,
and it then rotates while tightening, that a load will be transfered to the
block casting, and this load will increase when the block heats up,
increasing the likelihood of developing cracks in the block.

Any comments?
