Grease spigot shaft ?

Recommended Posts

Should I apply a thin smear of high melting point grease on the splines of the spigot shaft before installing the engine ? I have been advised not to, but I cannot imagine those splines taking the drive from the clutch plate bone dry

It would have to be the tiniest amount you dont want any excess getting onto flywheel grease the bush in the flywheel slightly I  don't  normally grease the spines as clutch plate is not doing a lot of moving around regards Stephen

Every clutch I’ve bought has come with a little packet of grease for this purpose.
