Is it normal procedure to have heavy 'red' grease on the drum and all S20 stoker external rotating assemblies, or should I clean all this off? The manual doesnt seem to include anything on this as normal procedure?

ok doing post reading this is a no-no and likely why the drive prawl is 'missing' the drum I will clean this mess off before checking the prawl for shape. This prawl appear to be more of a 'pusher' style then the one I see on the parts pictures....

All you need is the 90W synthetic oil in the oil pan. Clean everything up and fill the pan so the oil covers the teeth only.

Also, remove the pawl and clean the bolt. Leave it dry.
