<strong>Factory specs tell you to put a lubricating wick soaked with oil inside there, but a dab of grease works well also.

Included in the package was a fluorescent pink tag that said the following. This is a direct quote.
"This pilot bushing is made of an oilite bronze material which DOES NOT require any type of grease or oil. If oil or grease is applied, this material will bond the input shaft to the bearing causing internal damage"
I've been warned not to lubricate pilot bushings before I just didn't remember why.
