Default Exhaust pipe thread compound?

I am replacing the 1 1/4 threaded pipes on my generator. Should I use some sort of thread sealer? If so, what kind? Here's a pic of the trial fit.

I was thinking of the stuff they sell to seal regular exhaust pipe joints, but I am not sure if that is a good idea.

Could try the plumbing pipe seal from HomeyLowes,
will not harden and good to I think well over 500* easy to remove.

Default Thread Sealant

Permatex copper anti-seize works great. First it lubes the threads so u can get the joint tighter. Second it seals the threads and u can always get the joint apart at a later date if need be. I have used it many times on joints of this type and never had any problems.

Ditto on that... used it on my Perkins too.
