Lube question

Recommended Posts


My A/C917H is a dedicated mower. Greased the spindles and the brake pedal. Is there anything underneath that I would need to remove the deck to get at? Thanx, Dave

Did the spindles, the front rims don't seem to have any zerks. I do have a flex hose on the grease gun. I'll try to find that steering gear zerk this weekend. Thanx, Dave

There should be a grease fitting on each side of the front axle on each spindle, one on the right rear hub and one on the right axle tube.  The front wheels have roller bearings that are greased at assembly.  They do good if the mower is not in the rain or sprayed with water.  The wheel seals will let in water if that is the case.   Don't forget to check the hydrostatic oil and bevel gear box oil.

      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!😁
