I deal with o-rings just about daily on life preserving equipment, so I tend to go overboard in some cases. I'm just used to making sure components function to their highest reliability. At the very least, use a lubricant when installing, as Parker will tell you, that is by far the time when o-ring damage will occur.

It would suck having to tear a carb bank out and apart just for nicked o-ring. I should say, does suck. Been there, done that.

Personally, I don't like silicone on silicone o-rings because it makes them swell. That's not intended in the design. I do like the EZ Turn, as it will stay with the o-ring a very long time, not evaporating or washing away. Slippery o-rings are good o-rings.
