    Hello all once again, I have another question that I need to pick your brains about.
    I want to know what kind of oil/ grease to use for the crank case where the clutch flywheel and small bevel gear meet. I have thought about using some white grease or blue grease for general agricultural and tractors. Also considering transmission oil just because that is basically like a transmission. 2 solid pieces of metal grinding together at different speeds.
    What are your thoughts and why? Has anyone ever tried this?

    use the thickest grease you can find, and make sure it stays out of the clutch. you can use gear oil if you're willing to make clutch pucks out of a different material and attach a filler neck to the clutch cover

    Do you mean new clutch pads?
    And I have never heard of a filler neck.
