Finally rebuilding the Triton 540 PTO here.
Step says to grease the threads inside the pistol. Done. But are you
supposed to also grease the outside surface of the 1/2-inch or so diameter
core (medium gray color, with ribs) which moves in/out of the PTO coil? I
don't recall degreasing the inside of the PTO core when I took all this
apart (been a couple months) so I'm guessing no but wanted to check with the
