Zirk fittings (grease)

Postby Mike in Louisiana » Wed May 09, 2018 11:15 am

Are there just 11 grease fitting on ref cub, excluding the two places to grease the distributor and governor?

It depends. Lets see how many I can come up with.

They all have:
3 tie rod ends
2 steering knuckles
1 axle pivot
1 throwout bearing

Ones that were added in later production:
1 clutch pedal shaft at torque tube
1 steering shaft upper support

Ones that came with optional equipment:
1 PTO bearing
2 Touch-Control rockshaft
12 Fast-Hitch (up to, exact number depends on version)

That puts the answer between 7 and 24.

I am just about done working on all the things that I haven’t done in a while. I took the hood off and you know what that means. Found both generator and fan belts needed replaceing.
it’s h*** to be 75 and try to get up off the floor. I just did not want to trailer it to the bash (850 miles).

Mike, I'll soon be 75 and proud to be able to get up off the floor (although it's difficult at times). But I'm BLESSED!!!! :hattip:

I’m 42 and can’t hardly get off the floor. Trimming my toe nails hurts. I guess it’s the miles.

I'm sure I'm getting taller as I get older, the floor keeps getting farther away.
