Grease on gearbox input shaft

Post by h00per »

Hi all, I've tried asking on Facebook in a couple of places, and looked through the forum here, but I still don't have a definite answer.

When changing the clutch, should I grease the splines of the input shaft?

I have cleaned bell housing, pulled flywheel, checked endplay, replaced o-ring, replaced main seals on engine and gearbox, new spigot bearing, lubed, new felt grease seal, and a little grease on the end of the input shaft.

Yes the splines should be greased lightly with MoS2 grease.
