Not something I'd noticed or thought about before.

I was running the engine in my 'new' 175 in the garage, from a slave fuel tank, with the sprocket cover removed.

Noticed that the clutch pushrod was revolving, presumably at same speed as clutch pressure plate.

Is this usual ? I know that there is a ball bearing and plenty of grease at the outer end for it to run in, but I'd always just assumed that it didn't rotate, at least not until the clutch lever was pulled in.

On a previous engine that I rebuilt, the pushrod was badly bent at the outer end, no way would that have easily rotated.
