Potentially dumb question..... Does WD-40 dry out?
As the title stated.... I'm wondering if WD-40 dries out over time or does it act as a lubricant and stays "slippery".
Reason I'm asking is because I got a techmount stem mount for my gps/camera and I was suppose to push the "probe" with the rubber O rings into the stem hole. It recommended using a little water but it was damn near impossible to get even 1/4" in.
So I got pissed off and used WD-40.... even with that I had to use 100% elbow and shoulder grease to get that thing in. It's in now but the problem is if I firmly try to move it... it will move a little to the left or right.
So I'm wondering if the WD40 will dry out so it'll fit in there nice and tight... or if it will act as a "lubricant".

I was wondering if they made something like that.....
Acts as a lube initially and dries out as an adhesive. But I probably should leave it the way it is because it's on there pretty snug. And if I use that I probably wouldn't be able to remove it anymore if I ever wanted to.
