Mower deck grease fittings

Recommended Posts

Hello to all, Yesterday i flipped my 42 inch deck over (1690022) to grease the spindles and take off the blades for sharpening. One of the spindles is missing the grease fitting (makes ya wonder what the previous owner did for maintenance). Of the other two grease fittings that are there neither one seems to have the standard hex fitting to screw in or out (They appear rounded as near as my bad eyes can tell) and one of them spins a little when i twist it by hand. Before i clamp on my vise grips and get my self in deeper trouble---Are these grease fittings pressed in place into the spindle? Any comments or suggestions for replacing the missing one. Thanks to all, Happy spring. Greg

I have seen both; press fitted and threaded. I sounds like yours is press fit and broke off. You may be able to tap it and use threaded grease zerk. Jh

They screw into the arbors on my mowers. I currently have four decks. On many of these mowers, the bearings are totally sealed from the factory. The only reason for the grease fittings is to pack grease around the shaft to keep it from rusting so that it will come apart next time the bearings need replacement. I had one mower that did not have fittings, just had plugs in the holes.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
