Thanks. Matt. It shifts fine as long as I stop, idle down and pause. Very true about the might as well type jobs. Everything I've ever gotten onto has gone somewhat that way.

I used the long straw, spray lubricant on input shaft and around pilot bushing, hope it runs into bushing method. It actually worked well on my 53 Cub, has for a couple years now. It's starting to get a little worse, and probably needs another shot. I hate to split it with the clutch working so good.
