What do you guys use for lubbing your mechanical fuel pumps?
Just white grease?
Also, do you only put it on the lever tip?
or pack it inside the opening as well?
I've heard a bunch of different things.

I assume you mean when installing a new fuel pump, right? I normally just put a dab of oil on the pump lever. I`m not a big fan of the white lithium grease, it tends to remain as a blob in the bottom of the oil pan for quite a while.

Really?
It doesn't hurt it with no initial lubrication?
alright.
Good stuff.
