Love the Coax Seal product but it's sticky sometimes and gets on the threads of the connectors. Any concerns if it does? Should the threads be cleaned before reconnecting? 

It’s probably not a problem. Test the continuity between the outer shell of the pl-259 and the flange of the so-239. It should be 0 or very close to 0.

I would clean the threads (just because).  Can't say if it will have any electrical impact, but it could bind up the threads.

For anyone using considering Coax Seal or similar products do yourself a favor and put down a "courtesy wrap" of electrical tape or heat shrink.  Then you can goop away with just about anything you want and be able to remove it without crap getting in all the nooks and crannies.
