new front seal - install torque converter dry?

4l60E, and while I am swapping out the torque converter to a Yank, I thought it would be good insurance to remove and replace the front seal. I got the old one out and the new one in, which was an adventure, but I'm wondering if the converter shaft goes in dry (he he..) or lubed.

Any input?

Also, my car has the front seal retainer. The torque converter actually hits the retainer when pushed all the way in. Am I correct in assuming that this is acceptable since the converter is pulled back a bit to mate with the flywheel?

Thanks in advance
