All very simple stuff. Just don't use a Fram oil filter. They come unglued inside and plug up, destroying the engine.
While doing the spline lube, I would pull the rubber boot back, pull the driveshaft from the front bevel gear drive, And using a popsickle stick or small screwdriver, put plenty of grease on the front splines as well. These often get overlooked.
Part of the reason I don't have my engine back in yet is because I have rheumatoid arthritis, and can no longer get down on my knees. A bike lift would not help until after I got the engine bolted back into the frame.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
