Cotters -to lube or not to lube
I've always installed cotters with lube on everything but leaving the load bearing cut and the notch dry. I also always lubed the spindle and the crank arm too.
Now I'm reading Barnett's and he says to do it dry.
Have I been doing it wrong all along? Or is this like the grease/no-grease wars on square-taper cranks? (I grease those too)
