I did grease the end. Will this cause a problem?

I think the "no grease on the end of the driveshaft" comes from the possibility that too much grease can prevent the driveshaft from sliding all the way into the crankshaft or put downward pressure in the driveshaft. I doubt that the end clearance is that right but have never checked it.
A little grease should be ok but a "wad" of grease 1/4" thick may not be ok.

The technical term is a "schmear"  or a " skoesh" which is a very thin coating, much less than a "wad"  or a "glump."

Thanks seahorse, I was rather overwhelmed in my OB-1 course so must have missed the correct terms. :-)

The proper vernacular is very important in technical communications and online discussions, just as it is in the medical profession to prevent misunderstandings or having the wrong parts removed from the body. 

Our next lesson will be about measurement protocols - all Class A techs need to know the differences between a CH, an RCH, and something barely discernible.  😉
