Default Torque Converter Lubrication

I have a TAV2 mated to a 6.5hp clone engine. I have looked for the Comet lube locally, but can't find anything. I guess part of the question should be whether there is anything special about the Comet lube vs any other dry moly lube. I actually scored a can of Orapi Molyspray from a friend today for a great price - $0. Any experience with using this on the driver? Is there any real difference between these dry moly products for this application?

Should I apply this stuff to the driven unit at all? Any benefit / hazard?


TIA

There is only one specific place on the drive clutch where you lube, when you take the clutch apart the outer cover on the main assembly has a beveled section on the inside that only needs a small amount of lubricant on the incline itself. Thats it. Your benefit is that the aluminum assembly can then slide easier across this incline during operation, the hazard is that you almost spent money on comet lube. We've got it at the shop, it works great but it costs a great deal, those dry lubes are never cheap.
