A lot of the guys have quit trying to use gear lube because it is so hard to keep the steering gear housing from leaking. Instead they fill the housing with gun grease. This works well unless you use your tractor in very, very cold conditions and then it might be a little stiff.

That is what I use John, put a grease fitting in oil level hole just under steering shaft. I put a full tube grease initially and since that I give it a few shots every time I grease tractor. Works very well and no more mess. You have to get resovoir full of grease, as grease will not necessarily go to gears unless it has nowhere else to go. I live in cold climate, it is not bad.

Thank you Hugh. I will put a grease fitting on and fill with grease. This appears to be the easiest fix and still provide needed lubrication.

I put the grease fitting(zerk) and loaded it with grease. Works like a charm!!! The CIH dealer had a grease fitting that fit the level check plug...Thank all of you guys for your posts... You saved me lots of headaches!

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
