    I know this is a basic question but I am putting my new engine in and also a new clutch (centerforce II), chevy roller pilot bearing and centerforce throw-out bearing. What should I grease if anything. And what type of grease, how liberal should it be applied? thanks for your input!!

    No grease is needed. The instructions will prolly say the same thing.
    Usualy I will spray a light coat of WD-40 on the input shaft and that is it.
    The throwout bearing should come lubed from the factory.

    FYI: I talked with a Ford service guy the other day. Not a car one, the guy that works on the Super Duty and bigger. They are having a lot of trouble with the roller pilot bearings. He seemed to think this is very common across different makes and models of trucks with the NV4500. The SM465 may be different, but I don't know.

    Anybody else have good/bad experience with the roller pilot bearing??
