Where did you get the idea of putting grease on the inside of the clutch drum? That is like putting grease on your brake shoe drums on the car. Am I missing something?

Learned it from an old repairman thats been working on small engines for over 40 years. Just a light film is all it needs and the clutch doesn't slip at all. It smooths out the acceleration and the unit doesn't jerk or shake. I doubt its in the servive manual.
