To me, yes, looks good, you very don’t fill the box with grease!
I don't think you can over grease it short of filling the box.
alo good what I see do not forget the "tourinion"..no idea how to spell it.
At the shifter stick you need to do the same. Shifter plate out, rubber out then you can add as applies.
... See the two black 'dots' in the bottom of the Box?...they are rubber PLugs or Set-Screws??(don't remember), that are removed to Access the two set-screws, in the underside of the Arm, keeping it from rotating, and TIGHT on the Shaft. NO need to remove the cover plate, in order to Check the Set-Screws, for Tightness. Long ago, I found these screws, loose and causing play in the Shifting/Gating!. Check for play before you put the cover back on.
I had to lay on my back and use a Metric 'T' handle 'Allen' Wrench, never had to remove the plate, but did, to see the grease.. I'll bet there are a LOT of shifters out there with these Loose, and 'Play' in the system, that just 'can't be Located'!! Never TOO Much Grease. Just use the 'Correct' Grease.
...A recommendation...If you are having difficulty shifting into 'Reverse', it's usually because the 'Back-Up Light' SWITCH, is Screwed IN TOO Far. Check it out! Prove Me Wrong!
Thanks MJ. I actually read one of your older posts about this and when I got the cover off I said "ooh, there are those plugs". Based on your previous post I made sure they were tight. Thanks for that.
I used Red Line CV2 grease.
Mine goes into reverse nicely but that's a great tip.
