So, after I got it all installed,
I took it back apart and used some special bicycle wheel bearing grease
I had from when I used to be the head mechanic in a bike shop.
I recommend it highly for something like this.
It's called Phil Waterproof Grease made by Phil Wood company
Thanks for the tip!
Actually, I have two tubes of that in my "Mega MTB Repair Tool Kit".
I like that stuff too.
I'll give it a try if needed, though I haven't experienced abnormal shifting yet.
Coldest I've driven with the STS so far was the mid-teens.
Getting it back tomorrow with the clutch/tranny TSB.
We'll see how it does then, since it was barely 8°F this morning. BRRRRRRR!
I'm missing my heated seats!!!!
