Seems grease in a gear box would just get a grove cut in by the gears and then they would dry anyhow, kinda like 90wt gear lube does here at 60 below, sticks to the outside of the rear end and then the rear end goes to he--, but, people do some strange things...MPH

I bought a Simplicity 3 hp Rotocul tiller recently. I noticed that there is (an added??) grease zerk fitting on the cast worm wheel gearbox. The tine shaft seems tight and not wobbly. Is this an add on?? Most gearboxes like this that I have seen use the 80W90 gear oil. Or should I just pump in more grease?? Thanks

I have heard of people packing a leaking gear box with grease rather than tearing it apart and replacing the seals.

I was talking with a old guy a few months ago and he said if he has a old tiller that the seals keep going on it he just pumps it up with grease, This is probably what happend to yours
