When installing a manual transmission should you apply a slight amount of grease the input shaft splines?

I do. You do want the clutch to move freely. Don't use too much though.

Any suggestions on type of grease?

White Silicone, wheel bearing, something else?

I have always thought that only a small amount of engine oil should be used on a Pilot "Bushing" since they are porous "Oilite" material??


Use a bit of grease if you go with a bearing.

Understood.

The original asks about the clutch disk where it engages the splines (must slide on the splines freely or clutch no worky.) I also do what Monstertach mentions and apply a little Hi temp grease to the tranny bearing snout.
