1610d Drive shaft lube?

Postby Bud in Fla » Thu Feb 13, 2020 6:48 am

I recently noticed a new vibration in my 1610d. I can't really tell exactly where it's coming from but a friend who has a smaller Yanmar ask about lubricating the balls that are used instead of conventional U joints in the 4x4 drive shaft to the front axle. Anyone have any info or a diagram of where the grease fitting may be? I haven't found it yet.
Thanks for any info!

There is not a grease fitting for those balls. The manuals I have access to do not even list them as a lubrication point. It is recommended to put grease on them to hold them in place while installing. Having said that my personal opinion is that grease certainly couldn't hurt anything. Here is a thread from a lady that will show you some of the wear that goes on there. Good reading if you have time. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3578&hilit=lost+front+wheel+drive
