ANSWER

 

 

MTS checkout technician:

 

“Usually we just press the pin in without any grease or moly on it. Had it been a 220kip we would use moly to help assist but being that it is a 15kip we usually use just a liquid lubricant to help.

 

The Moly lube is used in the Jaw halves and pin to prevent gulling of the jaw bores when pressing in the pin.”
