I haven't even thought of that. Both of those sound like good ideas Corgi. I think I'd prefer the graphite I think because I found the silver anti-seize dries out over time. However either way you'd still have the problem of access of getting the graphite or anti-seize onto the balls. The cage that the bearings are set in is apparently press fitted together. I think Norm in his engine teardown post took one apart and all the little balls fell out and he said he had a heck of a time trying to put the thing together again. With a drop or two of oil the oil would simply work itself onto the balls but would probably contaminate the clutch as well.
