I got the same question. Sounds like something that we should have demonstrated at DOCFEST, and i got a few tractors that we can demonstrate on......

There is a round hole (that should have a cover) in the bottom of the clutch housing. The bearing is pressed against the clutch to disengage the clutch. Look up with a flashlight and you will see a grease fitting.

lay on your back under the tractor looking up at the torque tube. that round hole with the cover (hopefully still on it ) go in there up to the throwout bearing and grease it once a year

the bearing is located in the bell housing just behind the engine. If its the original graphite bearing it does have a grease zert but its hopeless to get grease to go in so the best thing is to open the access cover on the bottom to the bell husing then take a long putty knife with a good dab of dreas on it, reach up with the putty knife and dab some grease on the bearing face.

Mine always takes grease just fine. I had to learn the hard way that it needs to be greased.
My onlt question is where is the weep hole for the grease to come out and let you know it is full?

The weep hole is opposite the grease fitting. So it's on top in the bellhousing.

Use some eye protection, you can expect dirt to fall out in your face.
