Default Question about pinion and spur

Do you guys recommend using like a white lithium grease for the gears maybe a light coating or Do you use something else or nothing at all ?

Pinion & spur run dry. Internal gears can use a touch of grease, but you don’t want to use it on anything that isn’t sealed or all metallic because it’ll attract dust and accelerate wear.

There are graphite spray on lubes, powders, sticks.. I only use it on new metal spurs and pinions and reapply during rebuilds, I don’t constantly apply. I also use dry lubes on rod ends, pivot balls, and hinge pins. I have considered going dry on cv drives but have not.

also is there anyway to tell a t6.1 spur between a b6.1 spur I was planning on switching the b6.1 and I wanted to be sure I wasn't putting the wrong one on? I googled MM but doesn't seem to show that so any help would be appreciated here as well !! THANK YOU!

Pinion set screws generally use a 1/16 sae or 1.5mm metric wrench. Make sure the tip on your wrench is not rounded.
