JD L111 model
I have the deck off to change the blades!
Question How Do you lubricate the spindles?
I did not see any obvious lube nipples. (Yet manual show them)
If indeed they need it? Seems to spin nicely.

It seems like a lot of the JD 100 series have sealed spindles, like many consumer tractors. Are you sure that the drawing shows zerks?

Sorry for the delay Motorhead12! The originals seals had metal. I think the newer ones were more of a black plastic composite. I bought several all the same. I went with a better name brand.:dunno: IF I remember I will post it.
ITs tuff to see original on the left. The new one is the right.

No Zerks! And I am not adding any.;)
The high temp grease I added will last a long time! IT will basically help against moisture and corrosion. The Sealed bearings with the factory grease will do their job for the rotating shaft. I believe its recommended you should not over grease them.:2th:
I used a old race to help press fit the unit together.:pics: Then added the sheave! viola!
