I've never had a crank bearing go from greasing the spline

No, I haven't heard that one either. I'd have thought light oil was a waste of time which would be removed after the first dunk. I've 'greased my splines' for as long as I can remember. Prop always comes off, and never had a crank bearing failure.

Greasing the splines is ok ,
though i can see your point if you was to put a blob of really heavy thick grease ontop of the shaft & splines then shove it in it could cause a Hydraulic lock making
the drive shaft not go home proper ,
suppose then it then could put pressure on the bearings when you nip up the bolts on the leg ,

(( first day at work send the young apprentice around asking if anyone has a key for a hydraulic lock )

Some splined shafts have a small concave dimple on top that helps .

Id rather put a light coating of grease on the splines than try get it off when its rusted stuck .

This grease situation on the spline causing bearing failure is a load of bull. I'm sure Clyde outboards will back me up being in the trade
