    Basically same thing here but for the life of me I can’t tell if it came out of all four caps or not. Too hard to see inside that little bugger, plus I’m half blind and my glasses kept fogging from all that cursing someone was doing. Thanks , will attempt adding a 3rd s scv tomorrow for my power rake.

    This set up made greasing the infamous u-joint on 2320 a breeze today. See Photos Below. Found this at Ace Hardware. I just added it to my flexible hose with a 1/8 brass pipe coupler. Snapped right onto both zerks. Think I’ll tackle making an access panel opening soon and make this a 5 minute job. BTW I found this much easier than using the needle fitting. I will also add this to the main posts concerning u-joint.

    Got it greased.

    I am posting to show that I have had success greasing this puppy. I followed pruav's post #69 from this thread and bought the grease gun end listed by hotfeet in the previous post. I took the extension off of the grease gun tip because I needed to have the correct threads. I was able to get it greased in about an hour. It could have been done faster but it was my first time and I did not know my way around the bolts and the like. I have posted some photos to show that I was able to get in there with a regular John Deere grease gun. I also did not disconnect the cruise or parking brakes. I used a strap to hold the bottom dash out of the way. I saw grease coming out of the u-joint but I dont know that it came out of all of the caps. But I could feel and hear when it started going into the u-joint. I pumped in a few pumps and then ran the engine for 30 seconds and then put in a few more pumps. Here is to hoping it worked. I am at about 450 hours and I dont think it has ever been done before. It looked really clean in there. I am the second owner.

    rjm240, thanks for sharing. I bought the same piece and in about 5 hours will do the same. Feels like we are all part of a special club with this issue

    Are you sure that grease went into the joint?

    I could feel and hear when grease was getting in and was not getting in. I had to push but not excessively hard to get grease to go into the zerk. I could also see the grease coming out of one of the caps to visually confirm one side was getting greased. i could not see the other sides to confirm if it was getting in there. So, I just kept pumping. Hence, the mess in the picture. I then ran the tractor for a few seconds to spin the U-joint and maybe loosen it up a bit to help more grease get in. Then I did a few more pumps.

    Did you get the U-joint greased using this method? Were you able to confirm it grease came out all of the caps?
