Somebody posted a question about the engine to trans drive shaft and how hard it was to lubricate the front u-joint on the 1026R. I couldn't find where so I posted a new thread.
I was looking underneath and found an access hole directly underneath the front u-joint grease fitting. You'll have to remove your deck and rotate the engine until it comes into view. All of the other grease fittings are relatively easy to get to. Servicing this tractor looks easy.
I could not get a good picture, but I did try.
