Squeaky ball joint

Recommended Posts

The one that comes out from the left side of the tractor (large-frame) by the left footrest... squeak drives me nuts. I have sprayed lube in there but it only lasts a short while. Do I need to replace it or is there something else I should do, like maybe packing it as full of grease as I can get it?

You can unbolt the ball stud from the arm, then push it all the way to one side and rotate and grease it. Then do the same with it pushed in the opposite direction. Then upward and then downward. This should put grease all over the entire inside of the socket that the ball fits into. Once the entire surface of the socket is covered with grease and also the ball, there should be nothing to cause a squeak.
