Try looking for a compound in a metal can called https://www.amazon.com/Never-Seez-NSBT-8-Regular-Anti-Seize-Compound/dp/B000KZCU26

I put it on the drive shaft of the outhaul twice a year. It takes 10 minutes. Just put a long grade 10 bolt in the bottom screw and tap it with a small sledge hammer. It comes out with 2 or 3 gentle taps.

Feel a bit like Homer! Doooh!!
