My Kubota is a 2600 DT with Hitachi starter. I have cleaned everything and I'm ready to put it back together with a new starter plate. I need help with what kind of lubrication to use, where, and how much. Thanks.

The end cap bushings should have a very light grease or oil. If it has a gear reduction a light synthetic grease would be best so it doesn't get too stiff when cold.
