Gauge Install Question...

My gauges in my sig will be here tomorrow...

I will be installing them tomorrow afternoon after work. I am confident in myself to do the entire job and I already have everything needed to complete the job at one time.

My question is that, should I grease the thread tap for the pyro install?
I am not greasing the drill bits, have a pointer magnet and shop vac to help with any remaining shavings, but I read to grease the NPT Tap... Your Opinions? Especially those of you that have had multiple gauge installs.

Nic
