To grease or not to grease?????

Recommended Posts


Gonna rebuilt a 48 inch deck to start mowing with and wanted to know what the FINAL ANSWER is. Do I drill housing and install grease fittings or don't the spindle bearings need grease?

If you wash regularly with water or mow submerged vegetation, grease. I have never bothered, and have seen no ill effect. Some folks prefer the precautionary measure. Mother Simplicity knows best.

The deck I am running already has grease zerks on each spindle so yes grease. If the 48" you are working on has factory lubed and sealed bearings those would not require a fitting.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
