I put the Noalox behind the bussblock connections to the taps Lawrence. I did have trouble with one of those blocks melting since it was not tightened enough. Take note that molten aluminum could wind up down in your windings. An 80 AMP relay would cover the 1.25 service factor multiplier quite well. I recommend putting a small blower on the taps to cool them. While the transformer is fine with the 150C temp rise, the cables aren't.
