Shop manual says to use a conductive sealer when installing a new temperature sender. What material should I use for that and where can I find it?

Some new senders already come with a sealer on the threads......But I also use teflon, but again make sure you have a good ground

Yup, the sender I bought already had some teflon tape on it... But if yours doesn't, just leave a couple threads bare to insure a nice contact patch, it doesn't have to be too much though, very low amp draw.
