temperature sensor replacement

1987 suzuki dt85 outboard..sensor is located in the head between #1&2 cylinders
Replacement package came with an envelope with a clear jell like substance.
What is it and how do I apply it?
Thks

Its either anti seize compound to put on the threads or its for the electrical connection to prevent moisture from corroding the contacts....

No instructions with the sensor?

The sensor fits into a depression into the head, two bolts into the head hold a bracket that hlods the rubber portion of the sensor tight to the head.
I have antiseize and this stuff 'aint' it....maybe an elect juice but there is too much, the package holding it is 2"x2". Won't know until I remove the old one.
What is the torque on engine head bolts?
Also, only 2 wires: one into the ignition 'black box' and the other a ground....not much need for anti seize.

Mystery Package

The mystery envelope is neither antiseize or anti corrosion....the contents are thermal grease and it is applied to the sensor prior to insertion into the head.
10mm bolt torques 29-42 ft lbs.
Took a little more research.
