axle overlubrication?

Recommended Posts

Hi Paul, I at times have heard something like what you described. But I assumed it was air excapeing from within. You know how sometimes the grease gun gets an air pocket inside and then forceing it into the grease fittings. At least I sure hope thats what it is. But thats just my 4 cents worth anyone make it 8. Next batter up please. -->jackl<--

While lubing up the grease fittings located at the rear axle on my 416H for the mowing season, I felt a distictive POP as I was pumping in the grease. After that the grease flowed easily for about another 10 pumps. Did I just push some old snotty grease out causing the POP or did I blow the grease seal back there, for that matter are there grease seals back there to pop?

I just filled my rear axels as well and they took a lot of grease
I am pretty sure your safe , cause if you blew a seal by grease preasure
you'd definatly see it comming out. You'll be able to tell when its full
just dont over do it. Enjoy the mowing season.

10 pumps! I give my HB212 about 3 to 4 pumps twice a year and my 3 newer tractors with 2 zerks about 2-3 . Have I been short or does 10 sound like alot?

      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
