I'am installing a new Campy record bb into a clean steel shell, the instructions do not mention the
use of any grease or anti seize compound. I see there is a small layer of locktite applied, it just
seems weird not to have some form of lube to protect the threads. Thanks

I lube them. And I cut out the rusty ones for people who do not lube threads.

Tap off the right cup-grease in there, also into the left cup. Grease onto the PREPPED BB shell(at
least the right side), teflon tape onto the threads if an Italian threaded(the superior
one)frameset..

Just did this for an old Merckx...only $50 to get it out...for the price of a dab of grasso....
