Hello All,

I use a special tool I made.  It involved the metal reinforcement rod used in windshield wiper blade refills.  It's a section of relatively thin rectangular aluminum rod.

Basically, cut off a 5" section, make a 30 deg bend at one end ( \__ ) .  I use it as an applicator.  Put a dab of grease, place shim on grease, carefully apply shim to bucket.

Done deal.
