RE: [DML] Fuse 7 - Engine Control - MELTED

there is a type of paste that is available from back during those ill-advised years when aluminum was being promoted for household wiring. My house has copper wiring, but the drop from the utility power pole to my breaker box is aluminum, and some of the wiring in the box is aluminum. Where I can I've applied this paste to the aluminum wiring there. It's called 'Noalox' (I guess from 'no aluminum oxidation'), instructions say it is to be used on Al-Al and Al-Cu connections. Would there be any reason not to coat the fuse blades with this before inserting them in the fuse holder? Would this be a reasonable solution to this problem?
