154 creeper Plugs?

Postby DanBuckman » Mon Sep 06, 2010 8:18 pm

On the right side of my creeper housing (side the brake pedal is on) there are two grease fittings. I'm guessing someone replaced plugs with them? Wouldn't think it would take grease as it's already running in oil.
I was also wondering if the creeper is sealed from the transmission or oil is common.

The creeper is separate from the transmission. The oil reservoirs are also separate. Each must be maintained and filled.
There should be no grease fittings and the oil inside should be hytran or equivalent.

Thanks, that's kind of what I thought but it's been leaking lots of fluid out the lower grease fitting.
or at least some of it was leaking out there, (I cleaned it and a run appered there).
Possible some is also leaking between the two housings.
It started leaking after I topped off the transmission.
Perhaps a seal between them is bad.
