707 Hi Lo lube?

Recommended Posts

batty54
I am the proud new owner of a pair of 707's one great shape the other parts machine. I am trying to refurbish the Hi/Lo kit from the parts machine to put on the good one. I found the link to the Pdf. manual, great help! I cleaned the gears and am about to reassemble but need to know what type of lube to put in. I assume a good chassis grease liberally applies to all bearing surfaces would be sufficient. The part that make me wonder, are the holes in the planetary gears, seems to be for an oil type of lube to get to the bearings. Any ideas?

I think all they use is grease...Seems like the PDF. manual would tell you somewhere in it?Maybe later I can dig out my manual and see if I can find it..Also seems like there should be a grease zerk on the outer side of the pulley to pump grease in it..Maybe that was on the large Hi/Lo kits?

The ones for the larger tractors just use regular grease -- I prefer to use a lithium-based grease for them that's designed for trailer wheel bearings, because it will hold up better at higher temps and is a bit more moisture resistant, just in case. . The ones for the larger tractors have a small bolt in the outside, center, that you remove and replace with a grease zerk for filling it with grease. Then, the instructions say to remove the zerk and replace it with the bolt. Note also that it must be installed on the tractor to grease it, else the grease just goes out the hole for the shaft, instead of being forced into all the cavities. I don't have any experience with the ones for smaller tractors, but I'd assume they're similar, since they share many components...
