Clutch Splines

Whadaya think, a bit of grease on them so it floats nice and easy and collects dust and drags and wears?

Or dry and clean?

Or really clean and some graphite paint?

You can run the risk of gumming up the splines with grease or paint or worse, having the grease drip down on the clutch itself.

I thought the tone of my prose indicated I didn't thing grease was a good idea but more for the gumming up reason. Yeah a guy could over apply it but that wasn't my concern.

The graphite paint I would have to be talked into. I don't think it would hold up in a this application and though it's thin when properly applied it still has to go somewhere when it fails and the disc is the likely landing place as you say.

So clean and dry it is. I guess I was wondering if anyone was going to argue for the goo.

I have used anti-seize before on over the road tractor clutches that I knew were running in the salt and sleet for long periods, but it was a very thin film.

I have used a very thin film of grease to aid in assembly without any negative side effects. As stated, it would be easy to use too much but a thin film seemed to help when I was putting everything back together.

I do not think the graphite paint would work in this application.
