Two questions:

What do you use for lube on the two speed, one way bearing?

How many turns out are you guys setting the two speed, the book says to start at 3 1/2 turns out?

Thanks

One ways are bearings

- bearings need lubrication

- therefore, by transitive, one ways need lubrication.

The NTC3 (and TC3) one-ways should not be as prone to dirt and crud as other cars since the diff cases are sealed so lubing it should not be a problem.

Lube it or luse it (sorry Jiffy Lube! )

I use AE silcone ball diff lube.

Don't use slippery greases like Ronnie Grease or oil because theyr'e too slippery. The oneway will slip often if you do.

True, FH, true. let me amend -

Oneways are bearings -

Bearings need to be cleaned and lubed -

therefore, oneways need to be cleaned and lubed
