    Lube question

    What’s the best lube to use on the blower shaft coupler and pto spline, my shaft coupler is a bit stiff. I figured grease would be to thick and attract debris

    If you are talking about the rear PTO mower, I just put a dab of grease on my PTO shaft and make sure the ball bearings in the PTO coupler are clean and lubed with a little grease, You can use a spray lube but its all external and as long as you keep the ball bearings moving in the coupler, I have't had dirt problems.

    It sure doesn't connect well without the grease on the PTO shaft tip and splines.

    I didn’t think mine would get that tight and stiff so quick. Was wondering what you guys used. Thanks Sulley

    What Sulley said, and occasionally I'll shoot the coupler on the brush hog with penetrating oil (not WD40) and work it in to help keep the balls free floating and flush out any gunk.

    Personally I use an anti-seize and grease mix. About 50/50. Mix to the right consistency and spread by a small acid brush. It works well, only slings off for the first few minutes of operation. Then the film hangs around for a long time without attracting too much dirt.

    I learned this from Bell helicopter years ago. They use this same technique on splined driveshafts for their machines and it works quite well.

    I mix it up in an old small film canister, remember those? It doesn’t take much and the cap keeps it fresh for a long time.

    Same here for the spline and coupler on the bush hog.

    Also all 3 point hitch components get a shot of Fluid Film when changing implements out, doesn't dry out like grease and
    not as messy.

    Lucas grease on the PTO shaft splines. The key is to keep the PTO shaft and the coupling clean, after a couple of uses, the grease accumulates dust/dirt which will make it harder and harder to install. I wipe both down and apply new grease every time I use it, no issues so far.

    Maybe some Chain Wax? Fluid Film may be the same type of product. The Chain Wax works great on the 3 point snowblower chain.

    Fluid Film on the spline, open gear lube spray on the thee point hitch. Both seem to last a loooong time.
