Default Keep the joints Lubed !!

At first I was using the copper based anti-seize on the slip joints of my classic exhaust. ( long)

During one 50 hour inspection ( i do seaplane ratings and flight seeing)
I used the nickle based anti-seize. BIG MISTAKE.

At the next 50 hour the pipes were really jammed up and it was a real bear-cat to remove and clean them. AFTER ONLY 50 HOURS !

Of course I went back to the copper based high temp stuff and no problems.
