Greasing front wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

When I got my B-210 the front wheel bearings were junk. Obviously a lack of grease. Right now I have my front tires off my front rims. I plan on sandblasting the front rims then painting them. My question or my thought was " why can't I drill a hole into the center portion of the rim and put a grease fitting there ". If I did this I could easily grease my front wheel bearings without removing anything such as the dust cap. Puting the grease fitting there would also place it in the middle of the two bearings and races and almost on the center of the front spindle. What do you think of this idea ? Has anyone done this ? I could also do this with the dust cap but thought it would be better on the rim.

I have had many of these Tractors and very seldom was the bearings bad and only a few were dry on grease the should be just like a car or trailer etc. once greased they should last quite a While...

Get a set of bearing buddies. They replace the dust covers and go on easily. They have a grease zerk in the center and the grease couldn't be any easier to fill. I think they cost about $20 and should last about forever.

        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
