On the spline lubrication, the factory now just packs the splines with grease and bolts it together. Seems less than an optimal procedure to me given that the tailhousing has a weep hole and uses no gaskets. One would think that water and dirt would get in and cause long term problems. But what the hell, I'm 60 years old and will probably kick off before the splines do. They make a grease especially for use in rotating equipment such as Grid Line couplings on gearboxes etc. The oil in the grease doesn't easily sling out due to centrifugal force, I'll pack some of that in the splines and call it a day.
