    How much grease in the spring pack on X Valve?

    Ok so stupid question. I ended up rebuilding my old X valve (and glad I did since many of the seals were garbage). Did a full cleaning of everything as well but I am not sure how much grease really should be in the back spring pack? I put a decent coating but is it really supposed to be more so packed? When I cleaned it out there was a good amount but after 18 years of life and storage it was hard to tell how much of that was actually grease and how much was dirt/grime that had made its way in.

    I guess one really cannot over grease it since there isn't any air flowing through it right?

    Thanks

    Grease is only to inhibit rust, no need to over do it.

    Thanks! Wasn’t sure if there was a whole lot of movement in that spring pack or not (while I have a basic understanding of regulators, their actual movement still kinda boggles my mind despite being mechanically inclined haha).
