Actually, I emailed the dealer with a link to... your update ; )... and they said that they would take care of it. When I go to pick the beast up, I'll ask them if they had heard of the issue before and especially if they had followed GreenTractortalk before... probably this Thursday.No problem SMB, that is why we are here:thumbup1gif:
Just curious though, had they ever heard of or seen the update?
When I go to the http link in the attached PDF I get a log in screen. I think I know which fitting is at issue but what is the log in screen? Is there a way to see the location and get the service interval?
And the previous post mentions 6 fittings. Huh?

Guess again, I went in with an inspection mirror and flashilight, there is a zerk in there pointing backwards, Help!I have been doing my 50 hour maintenance this weekend and got to the part about the driveshaft. I crawled under there with my gun and greased the u-joint on the transmission easily but when I went to do the front one (as per manual)and it is buried, I went and got a flashlight and could not see a nipple on it. I guess this means it "aint a squeaky wheel"!
Pete, I use a grease needle on all zerks. It's great for hard to get to fittings such as the engine drive shaft u-joints. It takes two hands, one for the needle, and one for the grease gun. Obviously you need a pistol grip grease gun vs. a lever style.Guess again, I went in with an inspection mirror and flashilight, there is a zerk in there pointing backwards, Help!
