Can someone post pics of clutch shaft zerk fitting, and...

Tue May 07, 2013 7:32 pm

also, someone had mentioned in my post on this retrofitting a zerk on the older Cubs, if someone could post pics of where to drill, etc... I'd be much obliged. I had the pedal freed up this spring, and it started getting stiff again, spraying some really good lube in there right now with the right wheel up on a ramp to help it flow into the bushing area, but I'd like to get a permanent fix on this ;-)

I also put a fitting on the brake cross shaft on the other side as they freeze in the torque tube

Ok, got it handled, drilled it, tapped it, greased it ;-)

I had the pedal ohhh so freed up last night by driving the tractor up on a car ramp on the right side so I could get some gravity feed through the bushing area, sprayed it over and over with this super Moly lube, Lube it all I think it's called, good stuff and the pedal worked like brand new. But since Glen posted that pic, I had no excuse no to install zerks. Went through the whole shaft on the clutch side, so grease would go all around the shaft/bushing area. Used Shell Super Duty Moly grease, it's called something different now...

And to be nice I took pics, the Cub is a 1948, we've had it in steady use since the 80's, motor was rebuilt some time back.
