How Much Moly should be put on the rear splines? Is there to little or too much?

When I had mine apart I put an even liberal amount all around the splines then a little around the opening of were the gears go into the hub, but I always wonder..... Did I put enough on?? I don't here anything, no noise, grinding or anything, but don't want to either.

I did it when I changed out the tire, but I didn't do the rear brake pads, they had a few thousand more miles left so I figured I would tear it down again this winter and do that and go the extra step and take the tire off again and check it.

Any amount you use that is too much will get sloughed off onto the right side of your rear tire after just a few miles, watch out for it and wash it off, that stuff is slippery.

Did you pull the spider out of the wheel and lube the pins?

I'll be doing mine when I change the rear tire.

Lubing the pins?
Will Honda Molly 60 work ok in there also, I don't have Honda Molly 45 grease.

I'll be doing an 88 1500, but I guess same setup?

Moly 45 was recomended for the early Wings cause that was all there was back then, the Moly is what does the job, the higher the concentration the better.

Just coat the splines is all you have to do. If you have a brush, just like painting.
