Briefly looked at the front wheels, had a grease gun at the ready.

Didn't look long but, didn't see zerk fittings. Didn't see any broken off either. :dunno:

The poor Deere sat out too long, rain, rain, rain. Tarped but the tarp had numerous rips. Previous owner
had purchased a Cubbie. Deere was forgotten.

Should be one on each spindle and I think on at the axle pivot.

Greased the spindles. While doing so, water oozed out. The neglected Deere loves attention.

Now onto the wheel hubs. No grease fittings? :unknown:

No grease fitting for the axle pivot either?

Nope. It’s a common upgrade, but honestly hand grease every 2000 hours or 40 years and your good to go.

The JD parts illustration shows the front wheels having a grease fitting up to S/N 190000.
