So now you're adding another variable into the mix, not quite sure how that'll effect the grease or not on the taper but it gives him something else to look into ;-)

Perhaps we need to take a different approach with the esteeemed membership in the No camp. Aybody from the No camp ever try welding them on? How about drill & pin? Advantages: No fuss with the correct torque business. No worries about them coming loose either.

And there, at long last, it finally is. Life is too short. Needed back about 12 pages ago. Gentlemen, what say we retire this one?

To resolve this hopeless impass, how about the moderators open a simple yes/no poll? A democratic solution seems the only way out, otherwise we'll be trapped in this perpetual void of non-consensus till the end of time..

I agree. There is no point. Deep down we all know that no grease is the answer.

Sorry greasers....you lost this one! ;-)
