And why do you say the "cheapest grease available"? My cheapest grease would be that which is already on my shelf.
Cheap grease = no additives, just plain old inexpensive grease. The idea is that the graphite absorbs the grease and then provides a lubricant between the throw out bearing and pressure plate fingers.Glen wrote:The people on here recommend soaking a new throwout bearing in light motor oil for a day, before putting it in, and grease the grease fitting with cheap grease also, so the oil in the grease absorbs into the graphite.
Using cheap grease, grease the throw out bearing until grease comes out the hole in top. Every 6 months or so, another shot of cheap grease.
