7114 rear axle lube

Recommended Posts

I was doing a pre-winter lube on my Simplicity 7114H and snow blower, and I noticed that the rear axle zirk fitting apparently vibrated out since my summer mowing lube job. I put a new 11/32" zirk fitting in and pushed three 3 oz tubes of lithium grease through it, which went from rust colored and watery grease output to pretty much fresh looking grease after the 3rd tube. Am I OK w/ doing that, with an extra lube flush or 2 over the winter snow blowing season, or do I need to split the axle apart and clean it out more thoroughly?

I think you're fine. I doubt any moisture would have run up the axle shaft. And pushing fresh grease out will remove any moisture in the tube. You could drain and refill the transaxle but I don't think you need to worry about it. Though, if the trans filter and fluid haven't been changed in a while you may want to just go ahead and get it done.

        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
