Q: Installing manual transmission

asked by on

need tips: inserting transmission shaft through clutch plate and into flywheel. I used the shaft to install the clutch plate so the shaft would lineup. Also, should I grease the tip of the shaft?
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in. Yes, the input shaft should be greased lightly as this shaft end endures an enormous amount of speed and friction.
