Thanks for the input it is nice to be able to share a problem and get good advise from people who have had similar events. Thanks!!!
Hmmmmm,,,my dad taught me to leave some grease in the dust cap. I didn't question that, after all he was my Dad, for years then thought about it. Didn't make sense to me and I stopped it and never had a problem. Dad serviced his cars way back in the '20s so maybe it was a good idea back then. He passed away 50 years ago so I never asked him why.
