That came loose because it wore out due to no grease. replace it and try greasing the tractor like the Lord intended. lack of lubrication has ruined many tractor.Buy a mule it will refuse to work when neglected.

My 150 doesn't have grease fittings either on the outer tie-rod ends. You should have noticed steering play or slight wheel woble.

I would agree with Tom. All ball joints give worning that they are well on the way to failing. This can be shimmying on the road or a delay in the wheels moving when you turn the steering. UK and most European tractors no longer have grease nipples fitted. It is possible to drill the sheet metal cap and fit a nipple in some. Most over here are a neat fit on the pin and have a retainer to hold the boot onto the body. Remove the retainer ring when new and pack as much grease as you can around the ball. Refit the boot. Excess will escape. The grease hopefully will work its way in. As far as the ball joint is concerned I would advise replacing it.....your life may depend on it.
