I have NEVER understood the requirement of torquing fasteners dry. It makes more sense to me to specify what lubricant to use.
Could someone technically oriented explain what circumstances that REQUIRE non lubricated assembly and why, other than on applications such as oxygen service where the lubricant becomes a dangerous contaminant?

If you want more joy, peace, love, happinessÖ you have to GIVE those things first. You have to THINK those things. You have to have faith that theyíll come to you, despite what you may see. The truth isnít in what you see with your eyes. Itís what you feel in your heart."
