I am curious, do you always soak new parts in oil? I had never thought of that and am wondering.
LOL, I only ride during daylight hours. Old eyes and less chance of getting hit by cars.

My friend Hawaii Ed used to commute from Ewa Beach to Pearl Harbor, almost 20 miles, all in traffic. That's a LONG way to dodge cars in Hawaii, and he rode at 230 am!

I don't usually soak parts in oil. However, the pocket bike freewheel is not serviceable. There is maybe a .005" clearance between the OD, which moves with the chainring sprocket and the ID which screws onto the crank arm. When I install the freewheel, most of the oil seeps out, so I try to push some grease through that .005" crack.
