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.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
