Vacuum grease is not “needed” on o-rings to make a vacuum tight seal. Vacuum grease provides two things, 1) lubrication to allow for easier installation of the o-ring. 2) lubrication to allow movement of the sealing surfaces during evacuation. Grease is actually a detriment, as it collects dirt that can eventually cause leaks.
