  1. For me the "proof is in the pudding". I ran one deck for 15 years, (75-80 hours a year), greasing the spindles twice a summer.....no issues. Couple shots of a good grade of lithium based grease. I have taken several spindles apart for salvage and never seen a seal popped. I think running those spindles full of grease can help keep out water and dirt. Looking at other applications, like the mule drive, it runs on sealed bearings. Lots of tension and load. They run a long time. If you like to grease machinery, pop the seals........if not, leave r B.
  2. looks like your trying to hammer it out using wood as a blocker??? Might want to use metal, gives a lot less. May even think of using a piece of pipe cut to length on a good solid floor.
  3. A couple years ago a my friend experienced the same problem. One of the cam support socket head cap screws cam loose and backed out causing and was interfering with the hydro cam. Might pay to take a closer look there. One safety tip. Anytime I mess with those hydro adjustments I put the rear wheel up on jack stands for testing.

  9. I suppose they can be sharpened. I am planning on being there on Friday around noon. I have an issue with my ankle that is in a cast. Going to spend a few hours at the show then headed back home. If your there then that should work, or just tell me who I can leave it with and will catch up on the cash later. Joe

  13. before I go crazy on any wheel I lock the steering shaft with a pipe wench and steer the wheel trying to get the wheel to turn on the shaft. I try both directions, when that fails bring out the big gun puller.
  14. Okay, so far so good for me.
  15. Nice machine Duke! Power steering is the berries!
