    Every 50 hours no problem. 2320 engine driveshaft u joint

    Hello All,
    Well today I finished my U-joints from hell upgrade. I won't get long winded about this because there are many treads addressing it. I used Moog 410 U-joints and M807480 Rubber plug from John Deere.

    Might make some people cringe to cut that hole but, it seems to do the job quite nicely. Well done.

    Do you happen to have a URL link to the u-joint you bought?
    How long did it take you to install the U-Joint?

    Toughsox, you just take your time and a lot of deep breaths cutting a hole in a 200 dollar cowl.

    Gizmo2, Here is where I got my U-joints :https://www.ebay.com/itm/Moog-U-Join...72.m2749.l2649
    I probably have 12 to 14 hours total time start to finish.
    Here's a Youtube video showing it done on a 2320:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUb9...WTgk2kA&t=126s
    Some thing I did different than the video was instead of prying on the flywheel to remove the driveshaft,just take the rear u-joint apart with a C-clamp and a couple sockets. Also the Zerk doesn't bottom out if you keep the caps exactly as they came, don't switch them around. I also made the rear U-joint zerk point down when the Front is pointing right(aliened with the hole) so they can both be greased in one position.

    I hope this helps

    Nice work!

    So you called it an upgrade. I'm curious if you were having issues with the OEM u-joints...were they worn/damaged due to a lack of being greased by a previous owner? I am aware of the pain they are to grease. (I'm at 64 hours on the meter and will tackle this soon as it warms up a bit.) I'm not sure I'll cut the hole in the cowl or not...haven't decided.

    Maybe a stupid question but I'm gonna ask anyway. Is it now possible to grease the fitting from under the tractor?

    I went to the same U joints.
    No. You can almost see the zerk, but can't get on it with a gun.
    Easy with the access panel though!

    If I am reading this correctly, your u-joints are now "out of phase." If the angle is not much, probably a non-factor. If you can spare 2:40 out of your day, here's an interesting video to demonstrate. Drive shaft velocity - YouTube

    JohnM45, I was not having issues yet, I am the second owner and plan on keeping this machine for years. I wanted to be comfortable knowing and seeing that they took grease. The OEM u-joints were still in good shape but even with the Floor off and the rear u-joint in the open I still had a 50/50 chance it would take grease.

    Thanks,
