Have just looked at the operation pages for the tiller in the Simple Tractor pages. It does not mention greasing the tiller. I powerwashed what I thought was old grease caked onto the chaincase but believe most of it was dirt stuck on by a little grease. Some grease has squeezed out where the cases bolt together and just a bit at the shaft. How much is enough? 5 pumps per fitting? Or 'til is oozes out somewhere? And how often? Every use? Yearly? This will be my first tilling with a tractor. Looks to be an interesting weekend.

Unless I'm mistaken, you're supposed to grease it every 3 hours. I grease the zerks on the pulley shaft until I see grease coming out somewhere. Then I grease the zerk that greases the chain inside the housing about a half dozen pumps.

We have a IH 2+2 and I say a pump a day keeps the wrench away. It has alot of universels and i usely give them a shot every 10 hours. I do the same with my mowers. ya dont want to much grease to come out cus it will blow your seals out doing that. but like kent said give the gear box lots of grease.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
