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.
