I don't see the disclaimer anymore that there are no stupid questions, so this might be one. The flange assembly that attaches to the cup on the flywheel (just outside the grass screen) has a bushing that centers the drive shaft. Should the outside of that bushing be lubed with anything? It shouldn't move independently unless the driveshaft isn't perfectly aligned, and then only a bit. Would a little white lithium or dry graphite do any harm?

Nope, it's oil impregnated. ;-) The graphite just eat into the brass, dunno for sure though. I know I wouldn't.
