Not sure what engine you're building, but the timing gear should just go on without much fuss.... but either way, you DON'T want anti-seize on it. The oil will wash it off during operation and then you are purposely introducing metal flakes and other odd chemicals into your engine.

I just tap it on with a socket and a rubber mallet. Its supposed to be a .001" press fit on most engines, which means you should be able to push it on with your fingers most of the way.
